Welcome back BookTasty friends!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week I am showcasing The Sound, and upcoming summer release by Sarah Alderson.
When aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying for a wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground for Boston’s elite, she’s hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda.
What she doesn’t count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets, falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy, and falling out with a dangerous serial killer.
I saw this one on featured on another blog recently, and I was hooked! I want to read this book really bad. I love books set in high-class summer vacation spots like Nantucket. There is something so mysterious about places like that already, then adding a serial killer?! YES!
But I am a little confused. Everywhere I check online says this book is a UK release (slated to come out on August 1) with no details on a US release. Does anyone have any insight towards this? Will it be in bookstores here on the same date?
Are you waiting for The Sound today too?
