Waiting on Wednesday (61)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

The Eleventh Plague
by Jeff Hirsch
To be released: September 1, 2011

Summary from Baker and Taylor:
"Twenty years after the start of the war that caused the Collapse, fifteen-year-old Stephen, his father, and grandfather travel post-Collapse America scavenging, but when his grandfather dies and his father decides to risk everything to save the lives of two strangers, Stephen's life is turned upside down."

There have been lots of dystopian novels lately, but this one sounds really interesting. I think it's all based on influenza getting out of control. Very realistic. I think the story sounds wonderful and I can't wait to read it! Not to mention that this is a debut novel - sounds like a winner :).

I tried this one & the writing felt a little forced to me, but the content was phenomenal! Enjoy. Laura from Tattooed Books

The title sounds good. And illnesses spreading wildly-not the premise for a dystopian we normally see. Looks good. Enjoy it when it comes out!

Yay, this was my wow a few weeks ago. Looking forward to this one so much! And the cover is so eerie with the ferris wheel and colors.
