Waiting on Wednesday (73)

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

The Pledge
by Kimberly Derting
To be released: November 15, 2011

Summary from Barnesandnoble.com:
"In the violent country of Ludania, the language you speak determines what class you are, and there are harsh punishments if you forget your place—looking a member of a higher class in the eye can result in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina (Charlie for short) can understand all languages, a dangerous ability she’s been hiding her whole life. Her only place of release is the drug-filled underground club scene, where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. There, she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy who speaks a language she’s never heard, and her secret is almost exposed. Through a series of violent upheavals, it becomes clear that Charlie herself is the key to forcing out the oppressive power structure of her kingdom…. "

I haven't read Kimberly Derting's other books, but this one sounds amazing. I love the whole linguist aspect to the story. Not to mention that it's a little bit dystopian, a little bit realistic, and a little bit fantasy. Sounds like the perfect combo, doesn't it?

What are you waiting on this week?
