Dead to You by Lisa McMann will be released in the U.S. on February 7, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats.
Published by Simon Pulse, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, the print edition is 256 pages.
The week of February 7th is a great release week, and there were two books that I wanted to spotlight, but I chose Dead to You because I love author Lisa McMann’s writing and I’ve been dying to read Dead to You… no pun intended.
This book sounds tragic and heartbreaking and difficult and incredibly sad. And after having read Cryer’s Cross I have no doubt that this author will do a brilliant job with Dead to You.
I’m both curious and slightly afraid as to just what “unspeakable” thing has caused Ethan to be blocking memories of the past. A past that happened prior to his abduction. Because being abducted sounds like something pretty evil all on its own.
I have not stalked any reviews of this book because I want to experience it for myself without any input or influence from anyone else. But I am confident that this is a book that I will very much love, no matter how devastating the story itself may be.
This book title and cover caught my eye immediately. Even before knowing just what this book was about. The title is haunting and the cover is beautiful. But regardless, I will read anything Lisa McMann writes, because she’s amazing and her writing is amazing. And Dead to You is definitely a book worth watching out for. I can’t wait to read it next month.
Another awesome book releasing on February 7, 2012 is Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood.

Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family. It’s a miracle… at first. Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn’t going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he’d be able to put the pieces back together.
But there’s something that’s keeping his memory blocked. Something unspeakable…
