This week I'm wishing for...


Looking for JJ by Anne Cassidy

Summary from Goodreads:

"Three children walked away from the cottages on the edge of town toward Berwick Waters. Later that day, only two of them came back. Alice Tully knows exactly what happened that spring day six years ago, though it’s still hard for her to believe it. She’ll never be able to forget, even though she’s trying to lead a normal life—she has a job, friends, and a boyfriend whom she adores. But Alice’s past is dangerous, and violent, and sad... and it’s about to rip her new life apart.

A gripping and emotionally searing novel by accomplished British author Anne Cassidy, Looking for JJ infuses a terrifying subject with humanity and hope."

Why I'm Wishing for It:
Last week I'm pretty sure the sequel to this novel was featured on a Wishlist Wednesday, and I just have to feature Looking for JJ this week, because damn, I really want to read this again. I read this years and years ago, I think I might have been about 14 years old, and I remember loving it, but don't really remember the storyline. What with a sequel coming out, I really think I should read this one again.   

What about you? What are you wishing for this week?

  5. I have to admit that, as many of you, I had never heard of this book. But it sounds so griping. It reminds me of Mystic River; that was a great movie! So I can think I can expect as much greatness from this book? Hope you get to re-read it soon and get to that sequel. I will check it out myself.
