Waiting on Wednesday (19)

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 Linked by Imogen Howson (6/11/13):

Description on GoodReads:
Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.

Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.

Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.

Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.

Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling,
Linked will make you question what it really means to be human.
Okay, so twins + evil government + on the run + special twin powers/visions = definite must read for me. Seriously, how awesome does this book sound? At first, I was not the biggest fan of the cover. It was a little too blurry for me. But now having read the description a few times, I think I really like it. It’s like Picasso modern art of the 21st century twins. Right? Regardless of the cover, the description just sounds too good to pass up. Now, I just have to wait till June. What are you waiting on this week?
