Waiting on Wednesday (1) : Vanishing Girls, Lauren Oliver

I heard about Waiting on Wednesday on the fantastic Lit Up Review blog, and it seemed to me like a great idea to tag along with. Originally coming from the Breaking The Spine blog, Waiting on Wednesday allows me to talk about a book I just can’t wait to get my hands on. Let’s get started !

Vanishing Girls, Lauren Oliver
Expected publication : March 10th 2015
Publisher : HarperCollins

“Alarming and uplifting, a rare psychological thriller that has a kind heart at its center. Read it with all the lights on.”
–E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara’s beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it’s too late.

In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

Why is this the first book I want to talk about? Well, I love Lauren Oliver : she made me cry in the Delirium Series, she made me … well, cry, too, in her stand alone Before I fall, she made me shiver with anticipation in all of her novels,  I love the way she writes, I can always relate to the characters in her stories, and I think she shapes worlds and characters like no one else. So, naturally, I’m waiting eagerly to read more from her.

This synopsis combines everything I could love : disappearance, mystery, scarred relationships, and Lauren Oliver’s talent. E. Lockhart’s words about it, and the reviews on Goodreads about a poignant, intriguing story makes me even more impatient to read it.
