Is it just me, or did May seem to take *forever*? (and also go really fast?) Weird time is something we’re all becoming familiar with over the course of this exceedingly weird year… I guess we’re all slowly getting used to it!
But what if time – and relationships, and people – start getting weird in your small country town after a boy goes missing? That is (roughly) the premise of DEEP WATER by Sarah Epstein, our June book of the month. It’s a small-town mystery with layer upon layer of weird just shimmering below the surface…and I challenge you to find the clues in time to solve the mystery yourself before the end of this book!
Here’s the synopsis:
Henry Weaver is missing.
Three months ago, thirteen-year-old Henry disappeared from The Shallows during a violent storm, leaving behind his muddy mountain bike at the train station.
Mason Weaver is trapped.
While Mason doesn’t know who he is or what he’s capable of, he knows the one thing binding him to this suffocating small town is his younger brother, Henry.
Chloe Baxter wants answers.
Why would Henry run away without telling her? One of Chloe’s friends knows something and she’s determined to find out the truth.
As Chloe wades into dangerous waters and Mason’s past emerges, a chilling question ripples to the surface: how far would you go to keep a secret?
This is Sarah Epstein’s second novel – her debut, Small Spaces, was absolutely riveting, and I think you’ll find this one just as good.
I hope you enjoy this new read for June! Keep an eye out for an interview with Sarah coming later this month, and happy reading 🙂
