16-year-old Kara is on course to be a superb professional baker. Perfectly designed and piped, her cookies are masterpieces, but also her route out of the rainy streets of Seattle. Winning a prestigious culinary contest could take her away from the misery that is her home life since her widely hated big sister Kellen drowned. Now Kara's dad is gone, her mom has turned from high-powered attorney into nutty holy-rolling Christian fundamentalist who sells Soul Soup in the family café, and Kara is left with memories of better times.
As Kara pieces together the events that led to Kellen's death, she starts seeing her out of the corner of her eye: an unwelcome ghost in dirty Ugg boots. And then there are the notes. Someone is watching her, knows exactly where she is and what's she's doing. If she doesn't figure out who her stalker is, she could lose everything. Her chance of escape. The boy she's beginning to love and trust. And even her life.
Why I'm waiting for From Where I Watch You:
I wasn't at first, actually. I mean okay, a YA contemporary story about baking, happy family. But everything changed as I was reading the second paragraph. I've always loved a good YA thriller / mystery story and I haven't read enough of those so I'm definitely intrigued with this book after reading about the notes. Stalker? Someone watching?
(And hopefully it's not the boy she's beginning to trust.) So excited to see how the story plays out!
And that gorgeous cover! You actually wouldn't think this was a thriller based on that.
