There are several awesome books releasing the week of July 23rd that it was so hard to choose just one to spotlight. But after much thought the book I’m most intrigued by, the most curious about, is UNDERCURRENT by Paul Blackwell.

It was only a month or so ago that I stumbled upon this book. But I was immediately captivated by the cover and the fact that it is a thriller. I love suspense. I love mystery. I love to be thrilled. So I had to add this book to my shelf on Goodreads and to my pre-orders at Amazon. And then I had to wait. I’m still waiting. But not for too much longer, thankfully.

Because I am just so curious how going over the falls landed Callum in a “twisted version of the life he knew.” And I’m even more curious why more than one person in this alternate reality wants to see him dead.

The description is more than a little bit vague about what actually happens with Callum, which makes me even more eager to get answers to those questions it poses. And with its promise of “mind-bending suspense and unsettling thrills” I’m just dying to read this book.

If UNDERCURRENT delivers on its promise and the pace is fast, Callum’s new reality dangerous and the story suspenseful then I just know this is a book I’m going to love. And as I already love the cover and the idea of it, I just had to make it the book to watch this week. Even with three other amazing books releasing on the 23rd that I’m anxiously awaiting.

About the Book

Goodreads description:

In this suspenseful teen thriller with a touch of the otherworldly, perfect for fans of Neal Shusterman, a boy goes over a waterfall and wakes up to find himself in a twisted version of the life he knew.

A shadowy figure. An intense roar. The sensation of falling—fast.

That’s all Callum Harris remembers from his tumble over the waterfall. But when he wakes up in a hospital bed and finds his best friend trying to kill him, Callum knows something is seriously wrong. Unfortunately for him, the mysteries are just getting started.

Why are his parents acting like he’s some big sports star all of a sudden? And why are all the buildings in town more run-down than Callum remembers? Worst of all…what happened to Callum’s brother? Either Callum has gone seriously crazy or something happened when he went over the falls. Something impossible. Callum needs answers, and now. Because in this twisted new version of the life Callum knew, his former best friend isn’t the only one who wants to see him dead.

Filled with mind-bending suspense and unsettling thrills, Undercurrent is a grippingly paced teen debut that will pull you under and never let go.
