"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:
Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Publication Date: June 2, 2015
Summary (from Goodreads):
A delicious tale of revenge and identity from Carrie Ryan, the bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth
In the wake of the deadly devastation of luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace, rescued from the ocean after torturous days adrift with her dying friend Libby, knows that the Persephone wasn't sunk by a rogue wave as survivors Senator Wells and his son are claiming—it was attacked.
To ensure her safety from the obviously dangerous and very powerful Wells family, Libby’s father helps newly orphaned Frances assume Libby’s identity. Frances has spent years in hiding, transforming herself into Libby, and she can no longer allow the people who murdered her entire family and Libby to get away with it. After years of careful plotting, she’s ready to set her revenge plans into motion—even if it means taking down the boy she’d once been in love with: the senator’s son.
The game has just begun, and Frances is not only playing dirty, she's playing to win.
I've never read any of Carrie Ryan's books, but I'd certainly love to change that, with this book!

I've seen this one around but never read the blurb... and now I can't wait to read this!!! It sounds absolutely amazing and kind of reminds me of The Book of Ivy (which was super good). Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
