Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Apparently Michelle Magnon has written several books, but I've only heard of Don't Turn Around, which I plan to listen to on audio soon. I hope I like it, because this one sounds so incredibly creepy and cool. I really love the whole trapped teens thing, not to mention my affection for issues with memory. Add in a 'deadly, desolate world' and I am ALL OVER THIS.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
On a day like any other, six smarter-than-most teens wake up in the same hospital after having experienced a traumatic event that they can't quite remember ... other than being forcibly sucked into an abyss at the moment of their deaths. Somebody or something seems to be pulling the strings. With individual clocks ticking─and with each guarding an individual secret─they band together and conspire to piece together the whole of what happened.
Soon they discover that they've been trapped in a future that isn't of their making: a deadly, desolate world at once entirely familiar and utterly strange. Only one of them holds the key to getting them home. But which one, and why? As the truth is revealed through the eyes of its three key players, the reader is taken on a dark journey into both the hearts of teens who must do anything to survive, and into the heart of a parent who will do anything to protect his child.
