WOW

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme started by Jill at Breaking the Spine
so we can share the books we are anxiously awaiting to be released!

Here are two I can't wait for:

Renegade
by J.A. Souders
Tor Teen
Fall 2012

Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law. 

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie. Her memories have been altered. Her mind and body aren’t under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster. 

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb... and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.



Skinny
by, Donna Cooner
Scholastic
October 12, 2012

About a girl whose obesity and negative thoughts stand in the way of her dreams of becoming a singer and finding love, until she begins a long, hard journey of self-discovery and reinvention culminating in gastric-bypass surgery, only to find that love was never dependent on her size.







These are two I REALLY want to read!!
What do you want to read??

  4. Interesting picks! I like the fantasy and dystopian elements of the first one, though I'm not sure about that cover art. The second one seems like it will be a good 'issues' book.

    If you’d like, you can check out my WoW here.
