WoW [18]

Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s Wow feature is:
The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood
Expected Publication: July 30, 2013
Publisher: Penguin Books
Summary via Goodreads...
A gritty, psychological thriller that asks the question: How well can you know anyone? On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two eleven-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside vacation town when her investigation leads her to interview carnival cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it’s the first time they’ve seen each other since that dark day so many years ago. Now with new, vastly different lives—and unknowing families to protect—will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?

….I love a good thriller! This has everything that I love in a book. It has secrets, set in the summer, and a carnival? Now that’s something new.

So what are you all waiting on? Please share.
