Waiting on Wednesday: This Is Our Story

Ashley Elston - This Is Our Story
Expected publication: November 15, 2016 by Disney-Hyperion
Genres: Thriller, Young Adult

No one knows what happened that morning at River Point. Five boys went hunting. Four came back. The boys won’t say who fired the shot that killed their friend; the evidence shows it could have been any one of them.

Kate Marino’s senior year internship at the District Attorney’s Office isn’t exactly glamorous—more like an excuse to leave school early that looks good on college applications. Then the DA hands her boss, Mr. Stone, the biggest case her small town of Belle Terre has ever seen. The River Point Boys are all anyone can talk about. Despite their damning toxicology reports the morning of the accident, the DA wants the boys’ case swept under the rug. He owes his political office to their powerful families.

Kate won’t let that happen. Digging up secrets without revealing her own is a dangerous line to walk; Kate has her own reasons for seeking justice for Grant. As she and Stone investigate—the ageing prosecutor relying on Kate to see and hear what he cannot—she realizes that nothing about the case—or the boys—is what it seems. Grant wasn’t who she thought he was, and neither is Stone’s prime suspect. As Kate gets dangerously close to the truth, it becomes clear that the early morning accident might not have been an accident at all—and if Kate doesn’t uncover the true killer, more than one life could be on the line…including her own.

A murder mystery. Oh my goodness gracious. I'm feeling those How To Get Away With Murder vibes (but not really) and What We Saw vibes. I am obsessed with the name of the town, Belle Terre. It sounds so eerie and wondrous and I'm desperate for more info about The River Point Boys. AND THAT COVER. I'm such a cover analyst. Yeah, I'm weird bye. I'm, for real, loving how the colors are meshing and the symbolism of the shadows in the background. Obviously, y'all need to get this on your TBR quick.
