Waiting on Wednesday #220

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH BY CAROL SNOW

Goodreads Description:

Daisy's best friend is missing . . . and not for the reasons she thinks.

Henry Hawking is sixteen years old, brilliant, funny, and sly--and now he's missing. But no one seems worried except his best friend, Daisy Cruz, who knows that Henry's security-obsessed parents would never leave town without taking proper precautions. And Henry would never go away without saying good-bye.

Daisy considers all the obvious explanations for Henry's disappearance (federal witness protection program, alien abduction) before breaking into Henry's house. In his room, she finds a note that pleads, SAVE ME.

Desperate to find Henry, Daisy follows his trail deep into the California wilderness. What she finds there makes her wonder if she ever knew Henry at all . . . and if the world as she knows it will ever be the same.


Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: February 23rd 2016 by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

I haven't read many new books by new authors lately. But when I heard about this one months ago, I knew that I wanted to read it. And I'm so curious about it. That cover is stunning. And the summary seems awesome. Yet I'm a bit nervous. I want to love this one; so hoping that I won't be disappointed :)
What are you waiting for on this missing Wednesday?
