2021 Most Anticipated - The Project

The next book featured in my 2021 Most Anticipated event is pretty much guaranteed to destroy you. It focuses on a woman attempting to save her sister whom she believes is in a cult.

The book, of course, is The Project by Courtney Summers! Anyone who has read a book by Courtney before knows exactly what they are in for and those discovering her for the first time are in for quite the experience.

The Goodreads synopsis sets up the book perfectly, and I am already looking forward to meeting Courtney's version of a cult leader.
"The Unity Project saved my life."

Lo Denham is used to being on her own. After her parents died, Lo's sister, Bea, joined The Unity Project, leaving Lo in the care of their great aunt. Thanks to its extensive charitable work and community outreach, The Unity Project has won the hearts and minds of most in the Upstate New York region, but Lo knows there's more to the group than meets the eye. She's spent the last six years of her life trying--and failing--to prove it.

"The Unity Project murdered my son."

When a man shows up at the magazine Lo works for claiming The Unity Project killed his son, Lo sees the perfect opportunity to expose the group and reunite with Bea once and for all. When her investigation puts her in the direct path of its charismatic and mysterious leader, Lev Warren, he proposes a deal: if she can prove the worst of her suspicions about The Unity Project, she may expose them. If she can't, she must finally leave them alone.

But as Lo delves deeper into The Project, the lives of its members, and spends more time with Lev, it upends everything she thought she knew about her sister, herself, cults, and the world around her--to the point she can no longer tell what's real or true. Lo never thought she could afford to believe in Lev Warren . . . but now she doesn't know if she can afford not to.

Welcome to The Unity Project.

The next pulls-no-punches thriller from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Courtney Summers, about an aspiring young journalist determined to save her sister from a cult. 
I figured I would tease this with the top three reasons I cannot wait to get my hands on The Project:

1. Did you miss the part where it is written by Courtney Summers? She may rip your heart out and stomp on it for good measure, but her books are always incredible.

2. Lev Warren. If I know anything about Courtney Summers and her writing it is that her characters are always complex and layered. There is no way that Lev isn't going to be entirely fascinating even if he is a creep. I also bet Lo is something special too.

3. The sisterly relationship at the heart of the story being told. The fact that this isn't a guy trying to save his girlfriend or anything like that makes this sound even better to me.

The Project releases February 2, 2021 which is perfect because we'll all need something to look forward to during the very long winter we're about to have. I say use those holiday gift cards and snag yourself a copy.

You can find out more about Courtney by following her on Twitter, and by visiting her her website. You can also find out more about her books on the publisher website.

Are you as excited by the idea of a Courtney Summers book about cults as I am? If so let me know in the comments.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow to for the next book on my 2021 most anticipated list.
