Waiting on Wednesday- Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping story about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident.

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late.

In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

"Alarming and uplifting, a rare psychological thriller that has a kind heart at its center. Read it with all the lights on." --E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars
So, I can't wait for March and the release of the new Lauren Oliver book! *Fangirls* I've been a huge fan of her since reading the Delirium series. Yes, the last book was a little underwhelming, but it still remains one of my all-time favorite dystopians. I liked Panic as well. It's the only contemporary I've read from her (I know, I know - I need to get to Before I Fall, but time has been rather short in demand lately.)
At any rate, this book sounds like it will have a whole lot of emotion in it and I'm looking forward to something that will rip my heart out. I know, it's weird, but I'm a glutton for punishment. We all love a good book that can twist our emotions.
