“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating. This week I wanted to highlight the upcoming Adele Griffin release, Loud Awake and Lost. Griffin’s Picture the Dead and All You Never Wanted were two of my favorite reads of 2012, The Julian Game was a favorite from 2011, and Tighter is on my nightstand just waiting for that perfect free reading moment. Each book is unique and thoroughly engrossing. I can’t wait to see where she takes us next….
LOUD. There was an accident. Ember knows at least that much. She was driving. The car was totaled. She suffered back injuries and brain trauma. But she is alive. That’s the only thing left she can cling to.
AWAKE. Eight months later, Ember feels broken. The pieces of her former self no longer fit together. She can’t even remember the six weeks of her life leading up to the accident. Where was she going? Who was she with? And what happened during those six weeks that her friends and family won’t talk about?
LOST. One by one, Ember discovers the answers to these questions, like a twisted game of dominos. And little by little, the person she used to be slips further and further away.
In the wake of her critically praised young adult psychological thrillers, Tighter and All You Never Wanted, National Book Award finalist Adele Griffin has created another triumph. Loud Awake & Lost is an unflinching story of loss and recovery.
I have appreciated every Adele Griffin book that I have read and I imagine this one will be a welcomed addition to that list. Loud Awake and Lost is scheduled for a November 12, 2013 release (Knopf Books for Young Readers). Be sure to add it to your TBR list!
