Since the night of the crash, Wren Wells has been running away. Though she lived through the accident that killed her boyfriend Patrick, the girl she used to be didn’t survive. Instead of heading off to college as planned, Wren retreats to her father’s studio in the far-north woods of Maine. Somehwere she can be alone.

Then she meets Cal Owen. Dealing with his own troubles, Cal’s hiding out too. When the chemistry between them threatens to pull Wren from her hard-won isolation, Wren has to choose: risk opening her broken heart to the world again, or join the ghosts who haunt her.

Why can't I wait? 
This book sounds a bit on the dark side, and those kind of stories always grab my attention. The evolution of individuals through time and unlikely allies helping each other recover from past trauma fascinates me. I can't wait to see what's hiding between the covers of this one.

  3. I love the poem that title is drawn from, but I'm not sure about the premise of the book itself. I mean, it's intriguing... but having the option to go off to a cabin in the woods instead of to college? Screams privilege that I might not be able to identify with. Ah well, it's probably worth a shot for the beautiful cover alone. Nice pick!

  4. I literally just got a finished copy of this in the mail today. :D And I'm soo excited to read it! I've always loved darker books. x)
