Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It’s a way to share the upcoming releases that we’re excited about. This week I have chosen Intruder by Australian author Christine Bongers.
Intruder releases in Australia on June 2nd 2014.
If you like Fiona Wood, Cath Crowley or Jaclyn Moriarty, you’ll love Christine Bongers’ gripping new coming of age story, Intruder.
I don’t walk past the house next door. I wish the woman who lives in it was dead. Which makes it hard . . . because she was the one who came running when I screamed.
Kat Jones is woken by an Intruder looming over her bed. She’s saved by Edwina – the neighbour Kat believes betrayed her dying mother.
Her dad issues an ultimatum. Either spend nights next door, or accept another Intruder in her life – Hercules, the world’s ugliest guard dog. It’s a no-brainer, even for dog-phobic Kat.
When she meets adorkable Al at the dog park, finally Kat has someone to talk to, someone who cares.
But the prowler isn’t finished with Kat. To stop him, she needs Edwina’s help . . . and what Kat learns could mend fences – or break her fragile family apart forever.

I went to a blog day hosted by Penguin Random House and after hearing the publishers talk about this book I really wanted to read it. They explained that it’s about family and how the past shapes us and that it has a bit of romance. It sounds really interesting.
What about you? What are you waiting on this week? I’d love to hear from you.
