Waiting On is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Two years ago, sixteen-year-old Jamie Henry breathed a sigh of relief when a judge sentenced his older sister to juvenile detention for burning down their neighbor’s fancy horse barn. The whole town did. Because Crazy Cate Henry used to be a nice girl. Until she did a lot of bad things. Like drinking. And stealing. And lying. Like playing weird mind games in the woods with other children. Like making sure she always got her way. Or else.
But today Cate got out. And now she’s coming back for Jamie.
Because more than anything, Cate Henry needs her little brother to know the truth about their past. A truth she’s kept hidden for years. A truth she’s not supposed to tell.
Trust nothing and no one as you race toward the explosive conclusion of this gripping psychological thriller from the William C. Morris Award-winning author of Charm & Strange.
Why I’m waiting?
I absolutely adored Stephanie Kuehn’s first book, Charm & Strange, so I’m obviously going to be excited for Complicit.
Firstly, that cover is insanely gorgeous. I love the match and the edges burning and the boy in smoke. It’s such a very powerful cover. I couldn’t help but go, “well, damn” when I saw it.
Secondly, that synopsis gets me pumped up. And now she’s coming back for Jamie. Eeeek. I am sooo ready for the sibling dynamic. I’m not usually a fan of psychological thrillers, but there’s something about Stephanie Kuehn’s writing and storytelling abilities that make me hold my hands out and ask for more.
