Waiting On Wednesday (5)



Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis
Publication Date: April 17, 2012
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Find on: Goodreads, Amazon, Book Depository

What if you forgot your identity and had to rely on other people to tell you who you were?

And what if to discover your true self, you first had to unravel a mystery so big and terrifying you were not sure you’d survive solving it?


When Marshall and Elyse wake up in each other’s arms with zero memory of how they got there or who they are, it’s the start of a long journey through their separate pasts and shared future.

Terrified by their amnesia, the two make a pact to work together to find the answers that could jog their missing memories. As they piece together clues, they discover they’re in the idyllic mountain resort town of Summer Falls, where everyone seems mysteriously happy, but as Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town’s perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything—not the death of Marshall’s mom, not the hidden shame in Elyse’s family, not even the day-to-day anguish of high school.

Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marsh and Elyse fall into an intense relationship...but the secrets they uncover could be the death of this growing love—and the death of everyone, and everything, they love in Summer Falls.
This sounds like its going to be a very tense novel. A girl suddenly waking up and not knowing anything about who she was, what can be more interesting? The synopsis sounds great, so its definitely a book both of us want to get our hands on!

What are you waiting on this wednesday? 

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we are excited about.

  7. It kind of reminds me of Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac. The story is completely different, but both of the main characters have memory loss.

  9. Looks interesting. I think waking up and not knowing who you are would be horrible! Make me really feel sorry for those that actually do.

  11. That sounds a lot like the Stepford Wives or Stepford Place. I've seen this one, the makeup job on those eyes sticks out. I can't wait to read your review!!

  12. This book sounds good but how creepy to wake up and don't remember yourself! Anyway, the cover is beautiful and the story will probably be awesome!

    Here's mine!
