Waiting on Wednesday (#225): The Knowing by Sharon Cameron


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


The Knowing by Sharon Cameron
Book Two of The Forgetting series
Publisher: Scholastic
Publication Date: October 10, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Sharon Cameron returns to the rich world of The Forgetting with a companion novel as thrilling and intricately crafted as the first.

Samara doesn't forget. And she isn't the only one. Safe underground in the city of New Canaan, she lives in a privileged world free from the Forgetting. Yet she wonders if she really is free, with the memories that plague her and secrets that surround her. Samara is determined to unearth the answers, even if she must escape to the old, cursed city of Canaan to find them.

Someone else is on their way to Canaan too . . . a spaceship from Earth is heading toward the planet, like a figment of the city's forgotten past. Beck is traveling with his parents, researchers tasked with finding the abandoned settlement effort. When Beck is stranded without communication, he will find more in Canaan than he was ever trained for. What will happen when worlds and memories, beliefs -- and truths -- collide?

This pulse-pounding, evocative companion to Cameron's highly acclaimed The Forgetting explores the truth and loss that lie within human memory, and the bonds that hold us together.




Can you tell that I love all of Sharon Cameron's books? Because I do. I can't wait to read this new one!

  3. I keep meaning to read The Forgetting. I have had the book for almost a year (shame on me!). Maybe the coming sequel and all the praise will motivate me. =)
