Waiting on Wednesday (153)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick this week is:

People Like Us by Dana Mele  
(coming February 27, 2018!)
A sharp psychological thriller that's just right for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why and Pretty Little Liars --this story will seduce, mislead, and finally, betray you. 

Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she's reinvented herself entirely. Now she's a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl's body is found in the lake, Kay's carefully constructed life begins to topple. The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay's finally backed into a corner, she'll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make...not something that happened.

Debut author Dana Mele has written a taut, sophisticated suspense novel that readers will tear through and not stop talking about.
"This story will seduce, mislead, and finally, betray you."?! 

That's it, I'm sold! Gimme, gimme. 

But seriously this one looks great. I love private school based books, especially when there is a mystery is involved. Plus this has gotten nothing but 4/5 star ratings so far on Goodreads. So....is it February yet?!
