Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we can rant and gush about what upcoming releases we are impatiently waiting for.

My pick for this week is:

The Ward 

By: Jordana Frankel

To be published April 30th, 2013

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.



My senses are on overload right now, I’m not sure if I should gasp, shriek, jump up and down, dance or just shut up and enjoy it’s magnificence. Good thing I can do all of them in the safety of my home. 

What are you impatiently waiting on?
