Waiting for Wednesday

Waiting For Wednesday: Burn Our Bodies Down

December 11, 2019

Wilder Girls was one of the standout books for 2019 for me, surpassing any and all expectations. It was the perfect combination of Horror, Suspense, and Romance. Thus I am absolutely THRILLED to see a new book by Rory Power coming out!

Ever since Margot was born, it’s been just her and her mother. No answers to Margot’s questions about what came before. No history to hold on to. No relative to speak of. Just the two of them, stuck in their run-down apartment, struggling to get along.

But that’s not enough for Margot. She wants family. She wants a past. And she just found the key she needs to get it: A photograph, pointing her to a town called Phalene. Pointing her home. Only, when Margot gets there, it’s not what she bargained for.

Margot’s mother left for a reason. But was it to hide her past? Or was it to protect Margot from what’s still there?

The only thing Margot knows for sure is there’s poison in their family tree, and their roots are dug so deeply into Phalene that now that she’s there, she might never escape.

Burn Our Bodies Down Synopsis

AHHHHH!!!!!!!! That synopsis is just so… YES! I really cannot wait for this book and every way that it is going to completely WRECK me in the only way Rory Power can!

Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power will be released 7th of July 2020 by Delacorte Press. You can preorder your own copy at Booktopia, or wherever you like to purchase books.
