"WAITING ON WEDNESDAY"




I've been a fan of Sara Zarr since her first book, so I'm excited to read LOST due out October 1.

Summary courtesy of Barnes & Noble:

"Samara Taylor used to believe in miracles. She used to believe in a lot of things. As a pastor's kid, it's hard not to buy in to the idea of the perfect family, a loving God, and amazing grace. But lately, Sam has a lot of reason to doubt. Her mother lands in rehab after a DUI and her father seems more interested in his congregation than his family. When a young girl in her small town is kidnapped, the local tragedy overlaps with Sam's personal one, and the already-worn thread of faith holding her together begins to unravel. In her third novel, acclaimed author Sara Zarr examines the coexistence of affliction and hope, and what happens when everything you thought you believed---about God, about your family, about yourself---is transformed."

Yeah, sometimes I wish they would just release them and surprise us instead of teasing us for months.
