Some Quiet Place Blog Tour: Guilt

Some Quiet Place
Author: Kelsey Sutton
Publisher: Flux
Publication Date: July 8, 2013

I can’t weep. I can’t fear. I’ve grown talented at pretending.
Elizabeth Caldwell doesn’t feel emotions . . . she sees them. Longing, Shame, and Courage materialize around her classmates. Fury and Resentment appear in her dysfunctional home. They’ve all given up on Elizabeth because she doesn’t succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one—Fear. He’s intrigued by her, as desperate to understand the accident that changed Elizabeth’s life as she is herself.
Elizabeth and Fear both sense that the key to her past is hidden in the dream paintings she hides in the family barn. But a shadowy menace has begun to stalk her, and try as she might, Elizabeth can barely avoid the brutality of her life long enough to uncover the truth about herself. When it matters most, will she be able to rely on Fear to save her?

Emotion: Guilt

Name: Guilt

A Typical Summons: Charles sighs, his fingers gentle as they skim the yellow bruise beneath my eye. “I-I’m sorry I haven’t … I’m sorry I never … ” A new Emotion appears—Guilt. She places her hand on my brother’s cheek, in the same place his fingers rest on my own face. It’s strange.

Physical Traits: Even though Guilt is a big, lumbering Emotion, there’s something slimy and sly about her. She fills the room with her aura.

A Little-Known Fact: Guilt shimmers into view, so close that I can smell her: a combination of sweat and … grease?

  1. I love the cover of this, sounds like a good read!

  2. Wow -- interesting that she sees emotion in human form!
    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

  3. This sounds so original! The cover, as always, is super creepy (in a good way). I didn't really know what the book would be like, but the excerpt has definitely caught my attention as well :)

  4. This is such an awesome concept. As for the emotion summoned to me most often? Probably frustration haha.
