"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week:
The Silence of Murder
by Dandi Daley Mackall
To be released: October 11, 2011
Summary from Baker and Taylor:
"Seventeen-year-old Hope Long's life revolves around her brother Jeremy. So when Jeremy is accused of killing the town's beloved baseball coach, Hope's world begins to unravel. Everyone is convinced Jeremy did it, and since he hasn't spoken a word in 9 years, he's unable to defend himself. Their lawyer instructs Hope to convince the jury that Jeremy is insane, but all her life Hope has known that Jeremy's just different than other people—better, even. As she works to prove his innocence—joined by her best friend T.J. and the sheriff's son, Chase—Hope uncovers secrets about the murder, the townspeople, her family, and herself. She knows her brother isn't the murderer. But as she comes closer to the truth, she's terrified to find out who is."
Last week, I posted a mystery... so I figured I'd continue and make it a two week trend :). We'll see what next week brings. But I think this book sounds wonderful! I love that one of the main characters in the book is mute. For whatever reason. I think that will add a very interesting level to the story. Plus... murder mystery for YAs? Sign me up.
What are you waiting on this week?
