Waiting on Wednesday (90)

Hi everyone! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to share books we are dying to read!

This week's pick is:
Crash by Lisa McMann
January 8, 2012

If what you see is what you get, Jules is in serious trouble. The suspenseful first of four books from the New York Timesbestselling author of the Wake trilogy.

Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. It’s not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that.

What she can’t handle is the recurring vision that haunts her. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode...and nine body bags in the snow.

The vision is everywhere—on billboards, television screens, windows—and she’s the only one who sees it. And the more she sees it, the more she sees. The vision is giving her clues, and soon Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and it’s someone she knows. Someone she has been in love with for as long as she can remember.

In this riveting start to a gripping series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to act—and act fast—to keep her vision from becoming reality.


I LOVE McMann's books. They never have failed to surprise or delight me. And Crash sounds even better then all her previous books. I'm definitely anxious for another great book in McMann's beautiful prose, especially one that sounds as epic as this!

I've only read one book by Lisa McMann and it was really good. She definitely surprised me and kept me intrigued throughout the entire book.
