Waiting on Wednesday: Accomplice

This meme is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.

This week continuing on my initation into the world of gritty realism I'm waiting on:

Accomplice by Eireann Corrigan
Released by Chicken House July 2010

How far can you go for attention?



Finn and Chloe have it all figured out. It’s not enough to be clever, good looking or sporty. To get on, you’ve got to get noticed. You’ve got to be famous for something, right? Chloe decides there’s another way to get attention.


She and Finn will stage her own disappearance - and then Finn will be the one who finds and saves her. It seems like a good idea, until things go badly wrong. What seemed victimless isn’t so innocent anymore. And it’s Finn who must deal with the fall-out.


Accomplice is a compulsive thriller that will have teens drawn to the ultimate attention-seeking premise: staging your own kidnapping!

This one looks really good. But if I remember right there was another book with very similar theme. I think it was Now You See Her by Jacquelyn Mitchard. (It took whole of 5 min to get the name of the book :) )
