Over on Tumblr, Oliver shares the first few lines from Broken Things, her next Young Adult thriller. Right from the very first line, readers will wonder what happened and what will happen. Take a look!
Broken Things will be about two girls, Mia and Brynn, who have been accused of murdering their best friend. They didn’t do it, but five years later, a new clue will take them down the same dark path. They’ll have to figure out what really happened in the woods on that day, no matter how terrible it may be.
A cover for Broken Things has yet to be revealed, but you can read the synopsis from Goodreads below:
It’s been five years since Summer Marks was brutally murdered in the woods.
Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend. That driven by their obsession with a novel called The Way into Lovelorn the three girls had imagined themselves into the magical world where their fantasies became twisted, even deadly.
The only thing is: they didn’t do it.
On the anniversary of Summer’s death, a seemingly insignificant discovery resurrects the mystery and pulls Mia and Brynn back together once again. But as the lines begin to blur between past and present and fiction and reality, the girls must confront what really happened in the woods all those years ago—no matter how monstrous.
With all the intensity and whiplash turns of Gone Girl and One of Us Is Lying, this engrossing psychological thriller by New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver is an unforgettable, mesmerizing tale of exquisite obsession, spoiled innocence, and impossible friendships.
Broken Things will be arriving in bookstores on October 2, 2018. You can pre-order a copy via Amazon.
