My WoW pick for this week is:
Torn by Cat Clarke
Four girls. One dead body. A whole lot of guilt.
Alice King isn’t expecting the holiday of a lifetime when she sets off with her classmates on a trip to the Scottish wilderness, but she’s not exactly prepared for an experience beyond her darkest nightmares…
Alice and her best friend Cass are stuck in a cabin with Polly, the social outcast, and Rae, the moody emo-girl. Then there’s Tara – queen of mean. Powerful, beautiful and cruel, she likes nothing better than putting people down.
Cass decides it’s time to teach Tara a lesson she’ll never forget. And so begins a series of events that will change the lives of these girls forever...
A compelling story of guilty secrets, troubled friendship and burgeoning love.
Released in: January 2012
WoW because: Cat Clarke's Entangled was the best YA debut I've read so far this year. The characters were very true-to-life and the plot kept you hooked from start to finish. Torn sounds like it has the potential to be just as engrossing: The plot sounds Heathers-esque and that is one of my favourite movies. Teen girls, secrets, murder...can't wait to read it.
