Waiting on Wednesday #27: So Close to You by Rachel Carter
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday picks is:
So Close to You
So Close to You brims with the compelling “what if” mysteries surrounding The Time Traveler’s Wife and all of the action and creepy government experiments of The Maze Runner—and, in a new twist, presents a piercing look at a dark period in history and imagines what changes could have produced an utterly different world…and what one girl would do to stop it.
Lydia Bentley has heard stories about the Montauk Project all her life: stories about the experiments that took place at the abandoned military base near her home and the people who’ve disappeared over the years. When she stumbles into a vessel that transports her to a dangerous and strange new reality, Lydia realizes that all the stories she’s ever heard about the Montauk Project are true—and that she’s in the middle of one of the most dangerous experiments in history.
Alongside Wes, a darkly mysterious boy whom she is wary to trust, Lydia begins to unravel the secrets surrounding the project. But the truths behind these secrets force her to question all her choices. And if Lydia chooses wrong, she might not save her family but destroy them…and herself.
First off, I’d like to take a moment to gush over how amazing that cover is. Honestly, my favorite cover of 2012 already (so far). Okay, now that I got that out-of-the-way, I picked So Close to You as my WoW pick this week because the description sounds fascinating. I’m all for secret experiments and mystery. I can’t wait until July to read this one!
