Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.
This week, I’m waiting on The Moment Collector by Jodi Lynn Anderson, which has an expected publication date of August 7, 2014.
“The yard of this house is a graveyard of moments and everything left behind is a clue. And I am here to dig.”
There’s a ghost haunting 208 Water Street. She doesn’t know who she was, or why she’s still here. She does know that she is drawn to Maggie, the new girl in town, and her friends – beautiful, carefree Pauline and Liam, the boy who loves her.
But the ghost isn’t all that’s lurking in Gill Creek… Someone is killing young girls all across the county. Can the ghost keep these three friends safe? Or does she have another purpose?
I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t yet read Tiger Lily, even though it’s been recommended to me countless times. I’ve read enough raving reviews about Anderson’s writing, though, to know that The Moment Collector is likely to be a heartbreaking, powerful, and beautifully written story – and the fact that it involves ghosts and small-town life makes me even more eager to pick it up.
