Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!).
The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski
August 1st 2017, Feiwel & Friends
After her father goes missing in the woods that they protect, Winter tries to seek the truth in what happened, why the wood is changing, and what it all has to do with the arrival of a mysterious stranger in this thrilling YA debut.
When Winter’s dad goes missing during his nightly patrol of the wood, it falls to her to patrol the time portals and protect the travelers who slip through them. Winter can't help but think there's more to her dad's disappearance than she's being told.
She soon finds a young man traveling in the wood named Henry who knows more than he should. He believes if they can work together to find his missing parents, they could discover the truth about Winter’s dad.
The wood is poisoned, changing into something sinister—torturing travelers lost it. Winter must put her trust in Henry in order to find the truth and those they’ve lost.
Bobulski’s eerie debut is filled with friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.
This book's cover is what first caught my attention but reading the blurb is what made my need to read it grow more. I looooove books set in woods. They always hold some kind of mystery and I enjoy how, more than a setting, it turns into a character itself. And by the sound of it, this book is that kind of book. Yay! Cannot wait to see how it all turns out. :D
What are you waiting on this week? :)
