We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Be sure to keep your friends close . . . and your secrets closer.
Four years ago, Brynn left Saint Ambrose School following the shocking murder of her favorite teacher—a story that made headlines after the teacher’s body was found by three Saint Ambrose students in the woods behind their school. The case was never solved. Now that Brynn is moving home and starting her dream internship at a true-crime show, she’s determined to find out what really happened.
The kids who found Mr. Larkin are her way in, and her ex–best friend, Tripp Talbot, was one of them. Without his account of events, the other two kids might have gone down for Mr. Larkin’s murder. They’ve never forgotten what Tripp did for them that day. Just like he hasn’t forgotten that everything he told the police was a lie.
Digging into the past is bound to shake up the present, and as Brynn begins to investigate what happened in the woods that day, she begins to uncover secrets that might change everything—about Saint Ambrose, about Mr. Larkin, and about her ex-best friend, Tripp Talbot.
Four years ago someone got away with murder. The most terrifying part is that they never left.
As you might know, I love YA murder mysteries. And Karen McManus writes some good ones! So far I’ve 3 of her books and I own one more. While I’ve seen some similar patterns in her books, I do think she writes some compelling mysteries. And this one sounds pretty good!
I’m definitely intrigued, and I like that our MC seems a bit older than 16. This is going to be Karen’s 6th book, so I’m interested to see where this one will differ from the others. I’m for sure going to check it out. But I will admit, if it has those same patterns, this might be the last one I’ll pick up. Still, I have good hopes for a twisted mystery and I can’t wait to read what happened!
Had you heard of this one yet? Have you read any of Karen McManus’ books? And will you be picking up this one? Let me know in the comments!
