Waiting on Wednesday: The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma

Hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: The Walls Around Us
Author: Nova Ren Suma
Publisher: Algonquin BFYR
Release Date: March 24, 2015
“Ori’s dead because of what happened out behind the theater, in the tunnel made out of trees. She’s dead because she got sent to that place upstate, locked up with those monsters. And she got sent there because of me.”

The Walls Around Us is a ghostly story of suspense told in two voices—one still living and one long dead. On the outside, there’s Violet, an eighteen-year-old dancer days away from the life of her dreams when something threatens to expose the shocking truth of her achievement. On the inside, within the walls of a girls’ juvenile detention center, there’s Amber, locked up for so long she can’t imagine freedom. Tying these two worlds together is Orianna, who holds the key to unlocking all the girls’ darkest mysteries.

We hear Amber’s story and Violet’s, and through them Orianna’s, first from one angle, then from another, until gradually we begin to get the whole picture—which is not necessarily the one that either Amber or Violet wants us to see.

Nova Ren Suma tells a supernatural tale of guilt and innocence, and what happens when one is mistaken for the other.

Reasons I'm anxiously awaiting this one:

1. This sounds twisty and mysterious. Much like Nova Ren Suma's other novels.

2. Algonquin BFYR is publishing this. Algonquin BFYR is my jam. Seriously.

3. The cover. I can't help it. I'm judging this book by its cover and my verdict is favorable.

What are you waiting on this week?! Let me know in the comments!


  1. This one sound so good! I just heard about it yesterday but the cover is breathtaking :) Great pick!
