THE LAST GOOD DAY OF THE YEAR BY JESSICA WARMAN
A new powerful thriller from the globally-embraced author of Between.
Ten years ago, in the early hours of New Year’s Day, seven-year-old Samantha and her next door neighbor, Remy, watched as a man broke into Sam’s home and took her younger sister, Turtle, from her sleeping bag. Remy and Sam, too afraid to intervene at the time, later identified the man as Sam’s sister Gretchen’s much older ex-boyfriend, Steven, who was sent to prison for Turtle’s murder.
Now, Sam’s shattered family is returning to her childhood home in an effort to heal. As long-buried memories begin to surface, Sam wonders if she and Remy accurately registered everything they saw. The more they re-examine the events of that fateful night, the more questions they discover about what really happened to Turtle.
Master storyteller Jessica Warman keeps readers guessing in this arresting page-turner.

It's been a long time since I read Between by this author. But I did love it a lot back then. When I heard about this book a few months back, I knew I had to have it. The cover is gorgeous. And the summary is so amazing. And a bit creepy. And I think this book is going to be all kinds of amazing. Just waiting for May to get here. <3 Will be crossing all my fingers that I will love this book. I really want to. I hope so. Ohh! I have the eARC. <3 READING IT VERY SOON. I'm excited. And nervous. But hoping I will love it :)
What are you waiting for on this shattered Wednesday?
