Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a way to share our excitement over upcoming book releases with other book enthusiasts! This week the book I’m looking forward to reading is:
Impostor by Susanne Winnacker. Release date: May 23 2013. (Razorbill/Penguin). OK, you gotta love this tag line: “X-men meets Silence of the Lambs.” Seriously, I am so excited to read this book! Susanne is also featured today on Making the Grade’s Bookapalooza! event, and you can read an interesting interview with her and enter the amazing giveaway that is happening right now. Just click here to see what I’m talking about. Here’s the story description from Goodreads:
Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI.
When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again.
Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep.
Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.
Sounds great, right? What are you waiting on?
