Waiting on Wednesday featuring The Leaving by Tara Altebrando


This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

The Leaving

     Six were taken. Eleven years later, five come back--with no idea of where they've been. A riveting mystery for fans of We Were Liars.
     Eleven years ago, six kindergartners went missing without a trace. After all that time, the people left behind moved on, or tried to.
      Until today. Today five of those kids return. They're sixteen, and they are . . . fine. Scarlett comes home and finds a mom she barely recognizes, and doesn't really recognize the person she's supposed to be, either. But she thinks she remembers Lucas. Lucas remembers Scarlett, too, except they're entirely unable to recall where they've been or what happened to them. Neither of them remember the sixth victim, Max. He doesn't come back. Everyone wants answers. Most of all Max's sister Avery, who needs to find her brother--dead or alive--and isn't buying this whole memory-loss story.
     This unforgettable novel brims with rich characters, tense storytelling, and high stakes.

Why I'm Waiting: This sounds like another version of The Taking by Kimberly Derting and that makes me excited! I really loved the alien aspect in that book and I'm hoping it's kind of the same thing in this one. And if not, I'm hoping for a mystery that will knock my socks off and have me asking "WHAT EVEN?!"

What are you waiting on this week? 
Will you be waiting on this with me?
