When this leads her back to Seale House and the eerie foster care world from five years ago, she has no choice but to seek help from Noah, Jack’s long-time friend. Yet now Noah is far different from the boy she once secretly loved. After convincing him to help her, they set out to solve the riddle of Jack’s disappearance. Soon they realize that someone else is looking for Jack. Someone dangerous. Even more frightening, the supernatural events from five years ago are starting to happen all over again.

Waiting on Wednesday #8: “Glimmer” by Phoebe Kitanidis

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 is  “Glimmer” by Phoebe Kitanidis.

 

Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: April 17th 2012 by Balzer + Bray

Description from Goodreads:

What if you forgot your identity and had to rely on other people to tell you who you were?

And what if to discover your true self, you first had to unravel a mystery so big and terrifying you were not sure you’d survive solving it?

When Marshall and Elyse wake up in each other’s arms with zero memory of how they got there or who they are, it’s the start of a long journey through their separate pasts and shared future.

Terrified by their amnesia, the two make a pact to work together to find the answers that could jog their missing memories. As they piece together clues, they discover they’re in the idyllic mountain resort town of Summer Falls, where everyone seems mysteriously happy, but as Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town’s perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything—not the death of Marshall’s mom, not the hidden shame in Elyse’s family, not even the day-to-day anguish of high school.

Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marsh and Elyse fall into an intense relationship…but the secrets they uncover could be the death of this growing love—and the death of everyone, and everything, they love in Summer Falls.
