Some Quiet Place
by Kelsey Sutton
Publication date: July 8th, 2013
Elizabeth Caldwell doesn’t feel emotions . . . she sees them. Longing, Shame, and Courage materialize around her classmates. Fury and Resentment appear in her dysfunctional home. They’ve all given up on Elizabeth because she doesn’t succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one—Fear. He’s intrigued by her, as desperate to understand the accident that changed Elizabeth’s life as she is herself.
Elizabeth and Fear both sense that the key to her past is hidden in the dream paintings she hides in the family barn. But a shadowy menace has begun to stalk her, and try as she might, Elizabeth can barely avoid the brutality of her life long enough to uncover the truth about herself. When it matters most, will she be able to rely on Fear to save her?
This hauntingly stunning cover keeps calling to me. I first saw in on NetGalley. Instantly, I poked around inside to see if it was something I might be interested in requesting. I keep saying 'no', yet I keep finding myself opening it again, hoping for a blurb that will wow me. That will make me grab the publicist by the collar and shake them all while yelling my undying need to review this book. So far, the entire 4 times I have read the blurb, I have gotten bored with it every time and barley made it to the second paragraph. Yawn. As for the direction of the cover, if I had to wager a guess, I would say that the main character is slowly loosing parts of herself. forgetting who she is. Why she is. Maybe she's not from the country? She certainly feels out of place.
