Hello again, Book Nerds! ^.^ I'm back again to do another post today (two in one day, SHOCKING!). My previous post earlier was a cover reveal for a upcoming release, so if you guys are interested in seeing that, then just click the home button and scroll down. :) Any who, I woke up this morning to my dad de-icing the freezer - it scared the crap out of me. xD Definitely not the awakening I expected. :P
Title: Pretty Girl-13.
Author: Liz Coley.
Publisher: Harper Teen.
Expected Publication: March 19th, 2013.
Format: Hardcover, 352 pages.
Reminiscent of the Elizabeth Smart case, Pretty Girl-13 is a disturbing and powerful psychological mystery about a girl who must piece together the story of her kidnapping and captivity.
Angie Chapman was thirteen years old when she ventured into the woods alone on a Girl Scouts camping trip. Now she's returned home…only to find that it's three years later and she's sixteen-or at least that's what everyone tells her.
What happened to the past three years of her life? Angie doesn't know.
But there are people who do—people who could tell Angie every detail of her forgotten time, if only they weren't locked inside her mind. With a tremendous amount of courage, Angie embarks on a journey to discover the fragments of her personality, otherwise known as her "alters." As she unearths more and more about her past, she discovers a terrifying secret and must decide: When you remember things you wish you could forget, do you destroy the parts of yourself that are responsible?
Liz Coley's alarming and fascinating psychological mystery is a disturbing-and ultimately empowering-page-turner about accepting our whole selves, and the healing power of courage, hope, and love.
This book has been talked about so much lately in the blogging community. I can't believe I've only just added it to my TBR list! ^.^ I love psychological mysteries, they're so much fun to read and I love the anticipation. I think this book looks incredible and I can't wait to get my hands on it! The cover is also gorgeous, I love the way they've done the typography and the dark but bold colours. :) Have any of you heard of it before?
