Waiting on Wednesday # 17




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. The goal is to spotlight upcoming books that I am super excited for.

This week I am waiting on The Body in the Woods  by April Henry.




Expected Publication: June 17, 2014
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)



In this new series told from multiple perspectives, teen members of a search and rescue team discover a dead body in the woods.

Alexis, Nick, and Ruby have very different backgrounds: Alexis has spent her life covering for her mom’s mental illness, Nick’s bravado hides his fear of not being good enough, and Ruby just wants to pursue her eccentric interests in a world that doesn’t understand her. When the three teens join Portland County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, they are teamed up to search for an autistic man lost in the woods. What they find instead is a dead body. In a friendship that will be forged in danger, fear, and courage, the three team up to find the girl’s killer—before he can strike one of their own.

This first book in April Henry’s Point Last Seen YA mystery series is full of riveting suspense, putting readers in the middle of harrowing rescues and crime scene investigations.


This book has been on my radar for a few weeks now.  I love the cover with the green foliage surrounding the girl wearing green eye shadow. So pretty… 

The Body in the Woods is first in a series by April Henry. I am hoping that I enjoy it as much as I did her previous book that I read, The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die.  


Well that’s it for me this week. What book are you looking forward to??
