"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week:
The Water Wars
by Cameron Stracher
To be released: January 1, 2011
Summary from Baker and Taylor:
"Vera and her brother Will live in the shadow of the Great Panic, in a country that has collapsed from environmental catastrophe. Water is hoarded by governments, rivers are dammed, and clouds are sucked from the sky. But then Vera befriends Kai, who seems to have limitless access to fresh water. When Kai suddenly disappears, Vera and Will set off on a dangerous journey in search of him-pursued by pirates, a paramilitary group, and greedy corporations. Timely and eerily familiar, acclaimed author Cameron Stracher makes a stunning YA debut that's impossible to forget."
I really love the cover of this book. It's very intriguing and makes you want to pick it up, for sure. It sounds like a great adventure/thriller for teens. I can't wait to see how this one pans out. Not to mention that it's from a debut author! Doesn't get better than that, does it? :)
