Waiting On Wednesday (39)


Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"The Haven" by Carol Lynch Williams

This book is to be released March 4th, 2014. It is a stand-alone novel.

For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs--and memories.

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they've been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?

I have heard good things about the author, Carol Lynch Williams. I have not actually read anything by her though. Which is the sad case with a lot of good authors. Too many books, not enough hours in the day. But I do plan to read this book when I can. It sounds like a fun futuristic dystopian novel. I always like a good "plaguish" book as well.

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
