Waiting on Wednesday: (Don't You) Forget About Me


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we highlight a book we're impatiently anticipating.

This week's "can't-wait-to-read" pick is:


(Don't You) Forget About Me
By Kate Karyus Quinn
Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected Publication: June 10, 2014

From Goodreads:

Welcome to Gardnerville.

A place where no one gets sick. And no one ever dies.

Except...
There’s a price to pay for paradise. Every fourth year, the strange power that fuels the town exacts its payment by infecting teens with deadly urges. In a normal year in Gardnerville, teens might stop talking to their best friends. In a fourth year, they’d kill them.

Four years ago, Skylar’s sister, Piper, was locked away after leading sixteen of her classmates to a watery grave. Since then, Skylar has lived in a numb haze, struggling to forget her past and dull the pain of losing her sister. But the secrets and memories Piper left behind keep taunting Skylar—whispering that the only way to get her sister back is to stop Gardnerville’s murderous cycle once and for all.


This book sounds awesome. I don't know what to except, but it sounds like it will be dark, twisted, and a new take on a dystopian society. I'm excited to see how this will turn out.

What's your WoW?

  2. Oh, this is definitely intriguing! It reminds me a bit of The Replacement but with a different slightly price to pay for the prosperity of the town :)
