Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on UnSouled by Neal Shustermann (10/15/13):
Description from Amazon (Goodreads doesn’t have one yet):
Proactive Citizenry, the company which created Cam from the parts of unwound teens, is planning to mass produce rewound teens like Cam for military purposes. And below the surface of that horror lies a sinister layer of intrigue: Proactive Citizenry has been suppressing technology that could make unwinding completely unnecessary. As Conner, Risa, and Lev uncover these shocking secrets, enraged teens begin to march on Washington to demand justice and a better future.
But more trouble is brewing. Starkey’s group of storked teens are growing more powerful and militant with each new recruit. And if they have their way, they’ll burn the harvest camps to the ground, and put every adult in them before a firing squad—which could destroy any chance America has for a peaceful future.
How creepy is this cover? Also, how creepy is the story? Seriously, this story keeps getting darker and darker, and after book 1, I just didn’t think it could be any darker. Book 1 blew my mind in its awesome craziness. Book 2 took me a while to get into, but once I did, I absolutely ate it up. I was really surprised to see that Shusterman was turning his one book into a quartet, but I’m happy to keep reading. Bring it. I’m actually way more than happy. I cannot wait to get my hands on book 3. I’m excited to see all the new turns the story is taking.
