I wasn't planning on doing a WoW this week, but decided to throw one together at the last minute. I am off to NYC today to sponsor an Actor's Society trip as the last hurrah of my student teaching semester. I still need to pack and the bus pulls out this afternoon so I won't be checking my comments or posting for the next few days. If you leave a comment (or if you left one on yesterday's post), I promise to respond next week. Happy Wednesday, everyone!

18634726 The Vanishing Season

Author: Jodi Lynn Andersoon
Publisher: Harper Teen 
Release Date: July 1, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Girls started vanishing in the fall, and now winter's come to lay a white sheet over the horror. Door County, it seems, is swallowing the young, right into its very dirt. From beneath the house on Water Street, I've watched the danger swell.

The residents know me as the noises in the house at night, the creaking on the stairs. I'm the reflection behind them in the glass, the feeling of fear in the cellar. I'm tied—it seems—to this house, this street, this town.

I'm tied to Maggie and Pauline, though I don't know why. I think it's because death is coming for one of them, or both.

All I know is that the present and the past are piling up, and I am here to dig. I am looking for the things that are buried.

From bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson comes a friendship story bound in snow and starlight, a haunting mystery of love, betrayal, redemption, and the moments that we leave behind.
 Why I'm Excited:

This sounds so intriguing. What or who is after the girls of the town? Is is a supernatural being or a serial killer or a combination? Who is the narrator? I want know! Also, that cover is just lovely. The tree, the wisps of butterflies, the reflection in the water.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
