Waiting on Wednesday #21

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spines. This is a cool way to spotlight a upcoming release that you're anxious about, as well as checking out what other book lovers are anticipating as well. So, check out my WoW this week: 

The WardThe Ward

Expected publication: April 30th 2013 
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books 

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.

However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.

Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.

First of all, a daredevil racer? Woot~woot! Sounds like this book is going to be one heck of a ride. 

What are you waiting on?

  6. OMG YES YES YES!!! I have this scheduled as a future WoW. When I first heard about it, I was totally floored. The cover is absolutely amazing. I was almost afraid it would be a cool cover and a boring-sounding book.. but then the synopsis sounded great too! Win-win! I can't wait for this one. :)
