A new YA supernatural romance novel from Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the young adult book series Pretty Little Liars finds heroine Casey Rhodes drowning in déjà vu and hearing voices in her head. Her romance with Marcus, heir to a media empire, is challenged by the instant connection she feels with Jake . . .

Is Casey a no-nonsense realist or a hopeless romantic? A just-getting-by scholarship student or a sometimes-Cinderella dating the cool, cultured heir and New York City’s most eligible? At seventeen years old and already in her sophomore year at NYU, Casey sheds disguises effortlessly. It’s how she navigates school and avoids the second-guessing that’s plagued her since she and her boyfriend, Marcus, got together.

But then Casey starts hearing voices that terrify her so badly she flees to the remote beach town of Avon Shores where she can sort through her thoughts and reset. But the voices only get more intense and are now accompanied by visions of places she’s never been and people she’s never met, like Jake, who’s lived in Avon Shores his whole life. There’s no way Casey could know him, yet she feels an immediate connection. And stranger still: he feels it, too. Together they search for answers, finding only questions—about their connection, Avon Shores, Casey’s memories . . . And whose voice is she hearing inside her head?

Wait for Me is full of thrills, romance, and intrigue. It's a love story about connection and a thriller about searching for answers within your own mind. This is the latest of Sara Shepard's books to successfully deliver as a suspenseful page-turner and young adult supernatural romance book destined to have readers swooning for more!
