Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. In it, bloggers highlight an upcoming release they are excited for. This week, I’m highlighting a book that’s a little out of the norm for my usual reads, but intrigues me nonetheless.
This Is Our Story by Ashely Elston
Anticipated Release Date: November 15, 2016
No one knows what happened that morning at River Point. Five boys went hunting. Four came back. The boys won’t say who fired the shot that killed their friend; the evidence shows it could have been any one of them.
Kate Marino’s senior year internship at the District Attorney’s Office isn’t exactly glamorous—more like an excuse to leave school early that looks good on college applications. Then the DA hands her boss, Mr. Stone, the biggest case her small town of Belle Terre has ever seen. The River Point Boys are all anyone can talk about. Despite their damning toxicology reports the morning of the accident, the DA wants the boys’ case swept under the rug. He owes his political office to their powerful families.
Kate won’t let that happen. Digging up secrets without revealing her own is a dangerous line to walk; Kate has her own reasons for seeking justice for Grant. As she and Stone investigate—the ageing prosecutor relying on Kate to see and hear what he cannot—she realizes that nothing about the case—or the boys—is what it seems. Grant wasn’t who she thought he was, and neither is Stone’s prime suspect. As Kate gets dangerously close to the truth, it becomes clear that the early morning accident might not have been an accident at all—and if Kate doesn’t uncover the true killer, more than one life could be on the line…including her own.
I’m intrigued by the mystery of this story and I’m eager to read it. It also sounds like a more mature young adult novel, with the politics of the DA office and such involved, and that also makes me interested. Hopefully I’ll get to it soon after it comes out!
What are you waiting for this week? Let me know below!
