My pick this week...
by Jordana Frankel
Release date: April 30th 2013
by Katherine Tegen Books
Format: Hardcover, 384 pages
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.
I miss reading a great Dystopian book, I feel like I've neglected this genre in the past few months. But I spotted a few upcoming books that sound really awesome and I'm looking forward to their release.
The Ward by Jordana Frankel is one of them; it sounds kickass and original and I love action-packed books with strong heroines. The cover is gorgeous as well, so I can't wait to add it to my reading pile!
