Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Truants by Kate Weinberg:

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : The Truants by Kate Weinberg.  check out the description below – this sounds like something I would love:

TheTruants‘Where do I find Crime?’

‘Crime doesn’t have its own section,’ said the librarian without looking up, ‘it’s all under fiction.’

In this seductive coming-of-age debut, Jess Walker, a young and uninitiated first year student, falls in love with two great story-tellers. One, Alec, a journalist in exile, the other, Lorna, a charismatic literature professor. Starting out under the flat grey skies of an east Anglian university campus and ending up on an idyllic Mediterranean island, The Truants is about a group of clever and eccentric misfits who yearn to break the rules. As Jess’ experience of infatuation and betrayal, disappearance and loss gives way to a breathless search for the truth, she finds herself detective in a twisted crime of the heart. Unsettling, challenging, surprisingly funny and beautifully written, The Truants is a compulsively readable literary debut with a twist – and a dead body to boot.

Due for publication: August 2019

    I love the cover. The story sounds interesting, though I think I’ll wait to read some reviews before diving in.

      The cover is great – really draws the eye. And, sensible plan, you can’t read everything after all so sometimes it’s good to wait and see what the early reactions are.

      I really like the sound of this one – it gives me ‘secret history’ vibes which I just can’t resist.

    I’m excited for this one! I saw the U.S. version was a “Download Now” on Edelweiss a couple of months ago, so I nabbed it immediately. 😀

      I managed to grab a copy off there too. Hope it’s as good as it sounds 😀
