She’s Too Pretty To Burn
Author: Wendy Heard
Publisher: Henry Holt
Release Date: March 30, 2021
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray, this sexy psychological thriller explores the intersections of love, art, power and violence. For fans of E. Lockhart, Lauren Oliver and Kara Thomas.
The summer is winding down in San Diego. Veronica is bored, caustically charismatic, and uninspired in her photography. Nico is insatiable, subversive, and obsessed with chaotic performance art. They’re artists first, best friends second. But that was before Mick. Delicate, lonely, magnetic Mick: the perfect subject, and Veronica’s dream girl. The days are long and hot—full of adventure—and soon they are falling in love. Falling so hard, they never imagine what comes next.
One fire. Two murders. Three drowning bodies. One suspect…one stalker. This is the summer they won’t survive.
New love spirals into lethal danger in this expertly plotted YA thriller.
Why I’m Excited:
I love me a good YA thriller, and I love me a good classic retelling. Win, win. I’m very excited for this, so you know I’ll be keeping my eyes out for this one.
