Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Tessa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I’m a sucker for twisty stories. You know? Those stories that make you think you know what’s gonna happen, then another thing happens and it’s all a mess? I don’t know what that makes me but I like them for some reason, and today’s CWW feature looks like another one of those twisty stories I’ll fall all over for.
AMELIA has always felt like a happy life is just out of reach. Having moved every few years with her mom and sister, she’s always had a hard time making and keeping friends; there’s never enough time, and never enough money to stay in one place. And now, in her senior year, right before tennis season, Mom wants to move again.
SOPHIE has a perfectly curated, Instagram-ready life, from her first singles wins to her cute, long-term boyfriend to the beautiful, landscaped home where she lives with her parents. Though they’re tennis teammates, the two girls almost never speak.
But then one night changes everything. When Amelia’s car breaks down on the side of the road in a rainstorm, a man she thinks is a Good Samaritan pulls over to help her. When he tries to abduct her instead, she escapes into oncoming traffic.
In one inexplicable moment, Amelia and Sophie switch bodies. Amelia wakes up in Sophie’s body. Amelia’s body is in a coma. Now Amelia needs to find a way to switch back into her own life—but before that, she must retrace her steps to unravel the mystery of the accident, her attempted abduction, and how it’s all tied to her mother’s secret past.
Now You See Her sounds like a scarier version of Freaky Friday. I love it! I saw its e-ARC available for request on Edelweiss last week but I didn’t request for it because it’s just too close to its release date and I don’t want to have to rush myself reading it. 😕
This book comes out June 26, published by Katherine Tegen Books. In the meantime while you wait for it to come out, you can add it on your WTR shelf on Goodreads. (Or maybe, pre-order it. I have 😉)
