Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme originally created by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books we’re eagerly waiting for.
This WeekThe Grave Keepers by Elizabeth Byrne
Published by HarperTeen
Publication Date: September 12th 2017
Lately, Athena Windham has been spending all her spare time in her grave.
Her parents—owners of a cemetery in Upstate New York—are proud of her devoutness, but her younger sister, Laurel, would rather spend her time exploring the forest that surrounds the Windham’s’ property than in her own grave.
The Windham girls lead secluded lives—their older sister died in a tragic accident and their parents’ protectiveness has made the family semi-infamous.
As the new school year begins, the outside world comes creeping in through encounters with mean girls, a new friend, and a runaway boy hiding out in the cemetery. Meanwhile, a ghost hangs around the Windham property—the only grave keeper never to cross over—plotting how to keep the sisters close to home and close to her . . . forever.
Why I’m Waiting
Okay, so I honestly have no idea what the description of The Grave Keepers means but graves, ghosts, mysteries? Count me in. So far the couple of brief reviews I’ve seen on Goodreads sound promising so I’m actually really excited to jump into this with a completely open mind.
What are you waiting for this week?
