Waiting on Wednesday (126): THE FEVER

WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

THE FEVER by Megan Abbott
June 17th, 2014 from Little, Brown, and Company

The panic unleashed by a mysterious contagion threatens the bonds of family and community in a seemingly idyllic suburban community.

The Nash family is close-knit. Tom is a popular teacher, father of two teens: Eli, a hocky star and girl magnet, and his sister Deenie, a diligent student. Their seeming stability, however, is thrown into chaos when Deenie's best friend is struck by a terrifying, unexplained seizure in class. Rumors of a hazardous outbreak spread through the family, school and community.

As hysteria and contagion swell, a series of tightly held secrets emerges, threatening to unravel friendships, families and the town's fragile idea of security.

This cover is kind of unnerving, and the story sounds intriguing and different!

What are you waiting on?


  1. YES! I was just saying how I love covers with movement on them the other day, too! This sounds unreal! Thanks for putting it on my radar, Lea :)
