Waiting on Wednesday – Loud Awake and Lost by Adele Griffin

Hi everybody! Thanks for stopping by. Today’s post is ‘Waiting on Wednesday’ which is a weekly blog feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re super excited about.
Loud Awake and Lost
Loud Awake and Lost
by Adele Griffin
Expected publication: November 12th 2013 by Knopf Books for Young Readers

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 really enjoyed Adele Griffin’s ‘Tighter‘ so I’m really looking forward to another story from her. Have you read anything by Adele Griffin before? Are you looking forward to this one? Let me know!

    Ahh, another memory loss book! I own Tigter, but i still didn't get around to actually reading it, although I'm quite convinced it'll be good. This sounds super interesting too. Hopefully it'll be on edelweiss or netgalley soon. Not likely, but a girl can hope.
    Thanks for putting it on my radar.
