Can’t-Wait Wednesday hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings is a weekly
post to spotlight books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
This week the book I’m waiting on is …
Phoebe stands on Pultenay Bridge trying to cover her face with her hair so she won’t be recognized. Her tights are gashed from toe to thigh. She has lost a shoe. People keep looking.
Was it five, or ten minutes later she heard the commotion? Phoebe ran down the road until she saw. Mangled metal. Blood ran down the walls.
Phoebe believes this was of her making. She thought murder, and murder happened. She had told them her thoughts weren’t just thoughts and now she must live with the consequences. Phoebe won’t miss any more signs.
Who will be next to suffer? Phoebe directs her ire at her mother, scissors and knives all covertly pointing in her direction, but there are others to whom she is inexorably bound, her best friends Grace and Orla, and then there’s Mr Jonasson. Any of them might find themselves caught in the crossfire. For Phoebe is many things, but she is not in control.
What do you think? It sounds good, doesn’t it!
Have you had a chance to read Crushed or any other books by Kate Hamer?
Will it be added to your TBR shelf?
