Waiting on Wednesday # 17: Lost Girls by Ann Kelley

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Basically, it’s a chance to highlight one of the many books that you want to read but hasn’t been released just yet.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week is…

Title: Lost Girls
Author: Ann Kelley
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: July 10, 2012

No parents. No rules. No way home.

Fourteen-year-old Bonnie MacDonald couldn't be more excited for a camping trip on an island off the coast of Thailand with her fellow Amelia Earhart Cadets-the daughters of the men and women stationed there during the Vietnam War. But when a strong current deposits the girls on what their boatman calls the "forbidden island," things take a turn for the worse: A powerful storm comes to destroy their campsite, the smallest of the junior cadets is found dead, and their boatman never returns. What once seemed like a vacation in paradise has become a battle against the elements.

Peppered with short, frantic entries from Bonnie's journal, Lost Girls is a page-turning, heart-pounding adventure story about a group of teen girls fighting for their lives.

How coold does that sound?  It's like Lord of the Flies, but with girls.  Even though I already have an ARC of this one, I am forcing myself not to read it until at least May.  We will see how well that works out.

What is your Waiting on Wednesday pick this week?
