Waiting on Wednesday 01/30/2013

"Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at “Breaking the Spine”, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

This weeks selection is...The Ward by Jordana Frankel
Expected publication: April 30th 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books

I first heard about this book during Epic Reads ARC Party on January 23. I, of course,
immediately ran out and searched high and low for information about this book. Then, 
suddenly, it was on Edelweiss! Some of you lucky dogs have already received this book.
I am hoping that I'll get approved! 

This book sounds like something I enjoy. A Dystopian novel set in NYC and a spunky heroine!


Synopsis
Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.
However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.
Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre
