Pre Pub Book Buzz: Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies by Lindsay Ribar

I have a confession about today's title - it's being called Twin Peaks meets Gilmore Girls and with the exception of just a few episodes I've never actually watched either one. Doesn't mean I'm any less excited about Lindsay Ribar's latest though!

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

Twin Peaks meets Stars Hollow in this paranormal suspense novel about a boy who can reach inside people and steal their innermost things—fears, memories, scars, even love—and his family's secret ritual that for centuries has kept the cliff above their small town from collapsing.

Aspen Quick has never really worried about how he's affecting people when he steals from them. But this summer he'll discover just how strong the Quick family magic is—and how far they'll go to keep their secrets safe.

With a smart, arrogant protagonist, a sinister family tradition, and an ending you won't see coming, this is a fast-paced, twisty story about power, addiction, and deciding what kind of person you want to be, in a family that has the ability to control everything you are.

Sounds quirky and dark - right up my alley!

Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies is due out in June from Penguin/Random's Kathy Dawson Books.
