Waiting On Wednesday


Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I've enjoyed both of McMahon's other books and am looking forward to this one as well. Her books are always slightly different, which is a nice change. I am not a fan of the cover though.

Dismantled by Jennifer McMahon
Will be Released June 16, 2009

Description:
Dismantlement = Freedom

Henry, Tess, Winnie and Suz banded together in college to form the Compassionate Dismantlers. Following the first rule of their manifesto – “To understand the nature of a thing, it must be taken apart” – these daring misfits spend the summer after graduation in a remote cabin in the Vermont woods committing acts of meaningful vandalism, and plotting elaborate, sometimes dangerous, pranks. But everything changes when one particularly twisted experiment ends in Suz’s death and the others decide to cover it up.

Nearly a decade later, Henry and Tess are living just an hour’s drive from the old cabin. Each are desperate to move on from the summer of the Dismantlers, but the past isn’t ready to let them go. When a victim of their past pranks commits suicide – apparently triggered by a mysterious Dismantler-style postcard – it sets off a chain of eerie events that threatens to engulf Henry, Tess, and their precocious nine-year-old daughter Emma. Is there someone who wants to reveal their secrets? Is it possible that Suz did not really die – or has she somehow found a way back?

Funny how this one and THE SIMPLEST OF ACTS from your Teaser Tuesday have mosaic/montage covers.

Melissa - Shhh I'm Reading said...

Dawn - I didn't realize that, but you are right! The cover from THE SIMPLEST OF ACTS didn't really grab me either...

This isn't really the type of book I read, but something about it is grabbing my attention. I will have to try to check it out. Thanks!
