This week I am waiting on What She Left Behind by Tracy Bilen, it will be released on May 1st and published by Simon Pulse

“Don’t even think of leaving…I will find you,” he whispered. “Guaranteed.” 

Sara and her mom have a plan to finally escape Sara’s abusive father. But when her mom doesn’t show up as expected, Sara’s terrified. Her father says that she’s on a business trip, but Sara knows he’s lying. Her mom is missing—and her dad had something to do with it. Each day that passes, Sara’s more on edge. Her friends know that something’s wrong, but she won’t endanger anyone else with her secret. And with her dad growing increasingly violent, Sara must figure out what happened to her mom before it’s too late…for them both.

Okay, seriously I need this book! RIGHT NOW! It sounds so amazing, and I love the cover. The quote gives me the chills, and wow I just need this book! This book sounds like a great thriller/suspense with a side of creepy! May 1st..please hurry up!
