Waiting on Wednesday: Wake Up Missing

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can’t wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I’m particularly excited for…

Wake Up Missing by Kate Messner

Meet Quentin, a middle school football star from Chicago…
Sarah, an Upstate New York girls’ hockey team stand-out…
Ben, a horse lover from the Pacific Northwest…
And Cat, an artistic bird watcher from California.

The four have nothing in common except for the head injuries that land them in an elite brain-science center in the Florida Everglades. It’s known as the best in the world, but as days pass, the kids begin to suspect that they are subjects in an experiment that goes far beyond treating concussions….and threatens their very identities. They’ll have to overcome their injuries – and their differences – to escape, or risk losing themselves forever.

I love books about creepy experiments done on teens. Kelley Armstrong’s Darkest Powers trilogy comes to mind, as does a more recently read example, The Murmurings. I realize that makes me sound mildly sadistic, but in my defense it always makes for a good story. Wake Up Missing sounds like a great book that’s sure to keep me guessing and engaged. Another book to look forward to for Fall 2013!
