"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Larkstorm by Dawn Rae Miller. Here's the synopsis:
"In the years following the destructive Long Winter, when half the world’s population perished, the State remains locked in battle against the Sensitives: humans born with extra abilities.
As one of the last descendants of the State’s Founders, seventeen-year-old Lark Greene knows her place: study hard and be a model citizen so she can follow in her family’s footsteps. Her life’s been set since birth, and she’s looking forward to graduating and settling down with Beck, the boy she’s loved longer than she can remember.
However, after Beck is accused of being Sensitive and organizing an attack against Lark, he disappears. Heartbroken and convinced the State made a mistake, Lark sets out to find him and clear his name.
But what she discovers is more dangerous and frightening than Sensitives: She must kill the boy she loves, unless he kills her first."
It's a dystopian!! You know how much I love dystopian books, right? This book sounds right up my street - full of angst, romance and struggle. Also, the cover is simply beautiful and I'm pre ordering as soon as the link becomes available. The good news is we won't have to wait very long for his as Larkstorm is published on 5th December, 2011. No news about a UK release but apparently it will also be available in e book format.
