THE SOUND by Sarah Alderson (WoW #136)

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

The Sound

When aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying for a wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground for Boston’s elite, she’s hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda.

What she doesn’t count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets, falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy, and falling out with a dangerous serial killer…

THE SOUND will be released August 1st 2013 from Simon & Schuster.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    I haven't heard of it before but it sounds so good! It has some aspects of Nantucket Blue, but the plot is really different. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
