Waiting on Wednesday

This week, I'm waiting on...

By: Marie Lu 
What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.

-Summary from Goodreads
Release date: November 29th, 2011

I haven't been reading a lot of dystopian novels lately, and this looks like a fast-paced twisty tale I would enjoy! Marie Lu is represented by Kristin Nelson, one of my favorite literary agents since she represents very high quality works, so I think this one definitely has great potential.

What are YOU waiting for this week?
