Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker
It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.

Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.

This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance. -
Summary from Goodreads
I read a review that said this was a southern version of a faery changling story. Usually changlings are switched with young children, it'll be interesting to see this take on the legend. I always love stories about creepy faeries so I'm really looking forward to this. Plus, it involves siblings which adds to its appeal. I think this sounds like a really awesome and really dark read.
