I've never read an Elizabeth Scott book. I recently wanted to remedy this and went to my local library to pick out to of her Ya contemproary books.
Perfect You and The Unwritten Rule seemed like books that would be right up my alley. Well I started The Unwritten Rule and am really enjoying it so far. I'm hoping Scott will be the next YA author I fall in love with.
I originally got interested in her books because of reviews I'd read on Goodreads and of course because of this amazing cover for her new book - which given the premise is quite different from Scott's usual writing!
As I Wake sounds like an absolutely fascinating book and I can't wait to read it when it comes out on September 15th, 2011. Here's the premise:
What if you woke up and didn't know where you were?
What if you didn't know who you were?
And what if, when your memories started to come back--what if they didn't match the you that you're supposed to be?
Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them--and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.
Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust.
Hooked yet? I was.
Anyway, here's hoping these books become the filler for my long and semi-lazy (when I'm not working 7-3 everyday at a government job!) summer :)
