Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm picking:
Dear Killer by
April 1st 2014
by Katherine Tegen Books
Rule One—Nothing is right, nothing is wrong.
Rule Two—Be careful.
Rule Three—Fight using your legs whenever possible, because they’re the strongest part of your body. Your arms are the weakest.
Rule Four—Hit to kill. The first blow should be the last, if at all possible.
Rule Five—The letters are the law.
takes her role as London’s notorious “Perfect Killer” seriously. The
letters and cash that come to her via a secret mailbox are not a game;
choosing who to kill is not an impulse decision. Every letter she
receives begins with “Dear Killer,” and every time Kit murders, she
leaves a letter with the dead body. Her moral nihilism and thus her
murders are a way of life—the only way of life she has ever known.
when a letter appears in the mailbox that will have the power to topple
Kit’s convictions as perfectly as she commits her murders, she must
make a decision: follow the only rules she has ever known, or challenge
Rule One, and go from there.
Katherine’s Ewell’s Dear Killer is a
sinister psychological thriller that explores the thin line between
good and evil, and the messiness of that inevitable moment when life
contradicts everything you believe.
Why I'm Waiting:
A teen assassin? Sounds awesome. This one looks action packed, plus so much more.
