Waiting on Wednesday: The Shattering

Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Jill at Breaking the Spine
 




Book: The Shattering by Karen Healey
Release Date: September 2011
Genre: Young Adult

Publisher: Little Brown (USA)
Description:
"If you want to find out who murdered your brother, come with me."

Summerton is perfect. A town in the isolated and stunning West Coast region of New Zealand, it is blessed with gorgeous weather and hordes of tourists.

But Keri is immune to her hometown’s charms. Her older brother has just killed himself, without warning or explanation, and left Keri shattered with grief and too many unanswered questions. So when her childhood friend Janna and tourist Sione offer answers, Keri is keen to listen.

Janna and Sione’s own older brothers died in suspicious circumstances. Sunny Summerton has dark secrets. And as they investigate, the answers to their questions become more bizarre. Shattering the secrecy of Summerton may open the trio to dangers they never knew were possible.

Can they save Summerton’s next victim? Or will they become victims themselves?

A young adult supernatural adventure, THE SHATTERING will be available in September 2011 from Allen and Unwin (Australia/New Zealand) and Little, Brown (USA).


This books sounds amazing! I love adventurous mysteries; which from the description, I am betting that is what The Shattering will be. Plus, it's got a supernatural twist - which is right up my alley!

I didn't use to be really into this kind of novel, but Cryer's Cross and Clarity changed my mind! Great pick! This sounds like a very intriguing read!
