Waiting on Wednesday (144): WHAT WAITS IN THE WOODS


WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine


What Waits in the Woods by Kieran Scott
March 31st, 2015 from Point
An unputdownable thriller with twists and turns the reader won't see coming, from YA talent Kieran Scott.

It's a beautiful, sunny day. Callie Velasquez holds hands with her boyfriend Jeremy as they follow Callie's new BFFs Penelope and Lissa up the trail. The four friends are embarking on a camping trip -- a trip that immediately goes awry. They lose their way on the trail, and encounter a charismatic stranger with questionable motives. And when Callie stumbles upon a dead body, it becomes clear that the danger that lies in the woods is deadlier than she could have ever imagined. Tensions mount and friendships are tested as these teenagers try to survive the most sinister of circumstances.

I practically grew up reading Scott's Private series (written under the name Kate Brian), and those books were full of drama, murder mysteries, and shocking cliffhangers. So I'm curious to see what Scott will do with this book! Sounds like it will be an excellent thriller!

What are you waiting on?

  1. I did not realize that Kate Brian is Kieran Scott. I like the sound of this book. The premise reminds me of the teen suspense novels (Lois Duncan, Richie Tankersley Cusick, Christopher Pike) I used to read in my own teen years.

  12. I hadn't heard of this one either until now. I never read that series by her but I did read Megan Meade's guide to the McGowan boys which I loved. That and the first book in the she's so dead series...which I also really liked...man, I need to finish that series. ANYWAY. This latest book sounds amazing!
