CHASING SHADOWS by Swati Avasthi (WoW #135)

Posted by on April 24, 2013

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!
Chasing Shadows

Chasing Shadows is a searing look at the impact of one random act of violence.

Before: Corey, Holly, and Savitri are one unit—fast, strong, inseparable. Together they turn Chicago concrete and asphalt into a freerunner’s jungle gym, ricocheting off walls, scaling buildings, leaping from rooftop to rooftop.

But acting like a superhero doesn’t make you bulletproof…

After: Holly and Savitri are coming unglued. Holly says she’s chasing Corey’s killer, chasing revenge. Savitri fears Holly’s just running wild—and leaving her behind. Friends should stand by each other in times of crissi. But can you hold on too tight? Too long?

In this intense novel, told in two voices, and incorporating comic-style art sections, Swati Avasthi creates a gripping portrait of two girls teetering on the edge of grief and insanity. Two girls who will find out just how many ways there are to lose a friend . . . and how many ways to be lost.

CHASING SHADOWS will be released August 6th 2013 from Knopf.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Oh my god this sounds fantastic! I have a friend who does free running and I'd love to read a novel featuring characters who do it! The way the story is narrated with dual POV and art in it sounds awesome too :D Thanks so much for highlighting it, I'd never heard of it before!
