Don’t You Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn
Release Date: June 10, 2014
A place where no one gets sick. And no one ever dies.
There’s a price to pay for paradise. Every fourth year, the strange power that fuels the town exacts its payment by infecting teens with deadly urges. In a normal year in Gardnerville, teens might stop talking to their best friends. In a fourth year, they’d kill them.
Four years ago, Skylar’s sister, Piper, was locked away after leading sixteen of her classmates to a watery grave. Since then, Skylar has lived in a numb haze, struggling to forget her past and dull the pain of losing her sister. But the secrets and memories Piper left behind keep taunting Skylar—whispering that the only way to get her sister back is to stop Gardnerville’s murderous cycle once and for all.
Why I’m Waiting
I haven’t read ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE yet but I hear awesome things about that book and Quinn’s writing style. DON’T YOU FORGET ABOUT ME is something like I’ve never read before. A perfect society that creates deadly urges every couple of years? I mean really, how more original can you get? And that cover? I need this book in my life. ASAP. This book just screams to me and I can tell I’m going to love it. If only it would come out sooner!
What are you waiting on this week?
