Waiting on Wednesday #4

Sixteen-year old Cassie Renfield has seen the mark since forever: a glow around certain people as if a candle were held behind their back.

The only time she pointed it out taught her she shouldn’t do it again, so Cassie has kept quiet, considering its rare appearances odd, but insignificant. Until she watches a man die. Mining her memories, Cassie realizes she can see a person’s imminent death. Not how or where, only when: today.

Cassie searches her past, her philosophy lessons, even her new boyfriend for answers, always careful to hide her secret. How does the mark work? Why her? Most importantly, if you know today is someone’s last, should you tell?

The Author:

Jen Nadol grew up in Reading, Pennsylvania, hometown of John Updike, Taylor Swift, and fellow YA novelist, A.S. King. She graduated from American University in Washington, DC with a BA in Literature which spent twelve years collecting dust while she worked in Human Resources for a national retail chain. These days, Jen lives north of NYC in an old farmhouse with her husband and three young sons.

THE MARK is her first novel and she is thrilled to be writing – the thing she always meant to do.

Release Date: January 19, 2010
