Waiting on Wednesday (26)

It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.

Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.

This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.
Coming October, Beware the Wild captured my fancy because I want to know what the heck is going to happen with this creepy looking swamp.  But my enthusiasm is curbed by the presence of a loner boy who is conveniently the only one who can help our damsel in distress.  Still, I'm totally crushing on the cover and I want to see what happens.

What are you waiting on?
