Waiting on Wednesday (March 30, 2011)

We're waiting for Lark by Tracey Porter. narrated by three friends, this story sounds unique and different and that appeals to us. There's something about the cover we really like, the tree branches and the position of the singing bird.

Summary: When sixteen-year-old Lark Austin is kidnapped from her Virginia hometown and left for dead in a snowy forest, she leaves behind two girls who are shocked by the loss of their former friend. At the same time Eve must face the hole left by Lark’s absence, she also can’t shake the guilt that Lark’s death was her fault. Meanwhile, Nyetta is haunted by Lark’s ghost, who comes through the bedroom window and begs Nyetta to set her soul free. Eve and Nyetta realize it is their responsibility to uncover why Lark is trapped in limbo, but only by coming together to find the missing pieces of themselves can they bring peace to Lark.

Told in alternating sections by each of the three heroines, Tracey Porter’s stunning narrative about love and loss demonstrates that forgiveness can never come too late (from Goodreads).

Lark by Tracey Porter (hardcover, 192 pages) will be published by HarperTeen on May 24th.

  3. This sounds like one of those "gritty" contemporary books with a paranormal twist. For some reason, I've always found that kind the creepiest. lol This one sounds like a good read! :)
