"Waiting On" Wednesday - The River



"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The River
By Mary Jane Beaufrand
Publication Date: February 10th 2010 by Little, Brown Young Readers


Veronica Severance feels cut off from the world. Forced to move from the city to rural Oregon with her parents, she is haunted by loneliness and by the chilling sounds of the Santiam, the river that runs through her backyard.

Through the fog of isolation, Ronnie finds herself becoming close with Karen, a young girl who she babysits. But when she discovers Karen's body on the banks of the Santiam, the victim of a supposed accident, Ronnie feels compelled to uncover the truth.

As she becomes increasingly obsessed with solving Karen's death, Ronnie is led deeper and deeper into the woods surrounding the river and to the dark secret hidden within its midst.

This book sounds very intriguing.  The storyline is mysterious and I love any plot surrounded by mystery.  I like that the cover is mysterious looking as well.

Uh, don't know what the "commenter" before me had to say, but I think this book sounds reall good. Maybe a bit disturbing, but good. It's going on my list!
