Look Out Wednesday: You Were Here


It’s our weekly post that spotlights upcoming books we can’t wait to read.


Today’s book is by an author I adore! I loved her first book Breaking Sky and she was so fun to follow on Pre-Pub Adventure! Let’s take a look at Cori McCarthy’s You Were Here!


Expected publication: March 1st 2016 by Sourcebooks Fire

On the anniversary of her dardevil brother’s death, Jaycee attempts to break into Jake’s favorite hideout—the petrifying ruins of an insane asylum. Joined by four classmates, each with their own brand of disfunction, Jaycee discovers a map detailing her brother’s exploration and the unfinished dares he left behind.

As a tribute to Jake, Jaycee vows to complete the dares, no matter how terrifying or dangerous. What she doesn’t bargain on is her eccentric band of friends who challenge her to do the unthinkable: reveal the parts of herself that she buried with her brother.
