Title: Nearly Gone
Author: Elle Cosimano
Expected Publication: March 25, 2014
Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother's job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn't trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.
Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it all out soon—she'll be next.
Why I am looking forward to this: I don't read so much thriller tension, but I think I should, so I put this onto my tbr when I found it. I'm not so sure if I'll end up liking it though, because it could turn out to be rather shallow and obvious, but it could also be just the right kind of twisted and creepy.
