Waiting on Wednesday was brought to you by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books your waiting for!
This week I've picked Chasing AllieCat by Rebecca Fjelland Davis. Due to be released in February 2011.
Sadie Lester has been dumped with relatives for the summer. Boredom seems inevitable in her small Minnesota town until she meets Allie—a spiky-haired off-road biker with incredible grace and speed. Training for the upcoming bike race, Allie leads Sadie and cute fellow cyclist Joe up and down Mount Kato—an exhilarating rush that pushes their limits. The fun ends abruptly when they stray off the trail and find a priest, badly beaten and near death. After calling for help, Allie mysteriously disappears from their lives.
Just like the trash littering the beautiful river bluffs, there's something foul afoot. Creepy rednecks are prowling the woods, the same ones who ran Sadie and Allie off the road one night. It's not until the day of the big race that Sadie finally learns the startling truth about Allie, her connection to the priest, and what drove her into hiding.
The second book I've picked is The Locket by Stacey Jay. Due to be released early March 2011.
What if you got a second chance to fix your worst mistake?
What if you found out miracles could happen?
What if you found out that sometimes, miracles are curses in disguise...
One girl, two boys, and one very scary piece of jewelry.
