Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano
Publication date: March 25, 2014

Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother’s job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone’s skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn’t trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.

Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn’t figure it all out soon—she’ll be next.

I love mysteries and books about serial killers. I could do without the tasting emotions part, but other than that it sounds good.

  5. Nearly Gone keeps coming up more and more around the blogosphere. I am up for a good serial killer book, and I hope that the “tasting emotions” bit will really add to the story. That release date needs to come sooner though!
