Title: Beware The Wild
Author: Natalie C. Parker
Release Date: October 21st, 2014
Publisher: Harper Teen
It’s an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp — the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn’t return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.
Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp’s done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance — and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.
This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.
Why I’m waiting?
You had me at Louisiana. I am a big fan of gothic thrillers and swoon worthy romance and this sounds like the perfect book in time for Halloween!
