[I actually just downloaded Beware the Wild on Edelweiss yesterday. If you use Edelweiss try and get it, let me know and let's buddy read it. I've always wanted to buddy read with someone.]
It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.
Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.
This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.
Beware the Wild will be released on October 21, 2014. Click on the cover to go to the book's Goodreads page.
