Pre Pub Book Buzz: The Fever by Megan Abbott

I came across this week's pre pub book buzz pick trolling the "people who liked this also liked" recommendations online. It's a nice little connect the dots I use to add to my must have list (as if it isn't overflowing already) starting with books I really enjoy and following the lists down the rabbit hole!

Megan Abbott scares me, guys. She really does. I like dark, but Abbott manages to go to places that are skin crawling! Her upcoming release, The Fever, sounds all kinds of brilliant especially when I imagine what she can do with it.

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

The Nash family is close-knit. Tom is a popular teacher, father of two teens: Eli, a hocky star and girl magnet, and his sister Deenie, a diligent student. Their seeming stability, however, is thrown into chaos when Deenie's best friend is struck by a terrifying, unexplained seizure in class. Rumors of a hazardous outbreak spread through the family, school and community.

As hysteria and contagion swell, a series of tightly held secrets emerges, threatening to unravel friendships, families and the town's fragile idea of security.

The Fever is due out June 17 from Little, Brown and Company.
