I present this week’s feature ARC without further ado…
A Map of Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor
We sat at the edge of the ocean—my sister Henri and I—inches apart but not touching at all. We’d been so sure someone would find us by now.
Emma had always orbited Henri, her fierce, magnetic queen bee of an older sister, and the two had always been best friends. Until something happened that wrecked them.
I’d trusted Henri more than I’d trusted myself. Wherever she told me to go, I’d follow.
Then the unthinkable occurs—a watery nightmare off the dazzling coast. The girls wash up on shore, stranded. Their only companion is Alex, a troubled boy agonizing over his own secrets. Trapped in this gorgeous hell, Emma and Alex fall together as Emma and Henri fall catastrophically apart.
For the first time, I was afraid we’d die on this shore.
To find their way home, the sisters must find their way back to each other. But there’s no map for this—or anything. Can they survive the unearthing of the past and the upheaval of the present?
I had been seeing the cover of this book for a while now, but I never really bothered to investigate it further. I mean, it just seemed like such a gorgeous cover and when I saw stuck on an island in the summary, I kind of just died out on the summary and never really bothered with it again.
It wasn’t until I won June’s (…I think it was June’s? No, I’m pretty sure it was May. Oh dear. I’m failing) #arcstravaganza that I finally got a chance to actually properly read the description of this and fell in love. Not only is that cover super pretty in real life, it sounds amazinggggggggggggggg. I love an interesting family dynamic, and it seems like just the perfect form of creepiness, feels, and heart (is anyone totally scared of being stranded on an island?).
I was totally at a loss of what to read next, but after rereading this summary again for this post, I definitely know what I’ll be picking up now! Also, thanks so much to Krysti and Sarah to sending me over this book! ❤
