“Ori’s dead because of what happened out behind the theater, in the tunnel made out of trees. She’s dead because she got sent to that place upstate, locked up with those monsters. And she got sent there because of me.”
The Walls Around Us is a ghostly story of suspense told in two voices—one still living and one long dead. On the outside, there’s Violet, an eighteen-year-old dancer days away from the life of her dreams when something threatens to expose the shocking truth of her achievement. On the inside, within the walls of a girls’ juvenile detention center, there’s Amber, locked up for so long she can’t imagine freedom. Tying these two worlds together is Orianna, who holds the key to unlocking all the girls’ darkest mysteries.
We hear Amber’s story and Violet’s, and through them Orianna’s, first from one angle, then from another, until gradually we begin to get the whole picture—which is not necessarily the one that either Amber or Violet wants us to see.
Nova Ren Suma tells a supernatural tale of guilt and innocence, and what happens when one is mistaken for the other.
Oh, fine. I will share the teasers link with you all, as I just saw that Nova had a blog post about them all, which you can find here: http://distraction99.com/2014/08/03/teasing-excerpts-from-the-walls-around-us/ <3 Aren't they all awesome? :DReplyDelete
This is one gorgeous cover. I seriously love it! The colours, that it's font-driven... It's all brilliant. And the book sounds really good too. I can't wait to read it. I'll have to take a look at some of those teasers in the meantime!ReplyDelete
Amazing cover indeed!! Might seem simple at first, but it's absolutely gorgeous!!ReplyDelete
The cover is nice. But unfortunately I'm not really a fan of Nova Ren Suma's writing. Need to change that in future I guess ;DReplyDelete
I love, love, love this cover--and I love Nova Ren Suma, so I'm super excited! I actually hadn't read the full synopsis yet, so thank you for posting that here. Can't wait!ReplyDelete
