“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I’m not much of a fan of Elizabeth Scott, save for her Stealing Heaven. Sometimes I wonder if there’s something wrong with me, since everyone else seemed to like Bloom and Perfect You so much. Or maybe I just need to re-read them? I may have been expecting something too much from them since I am such a fan of Sarah Dessen.
Nevertheless, I am definitely curious about this upcoming release by Elizabeth Scott.
Grace by Elizabeth Scott
Release date: September 16, 2010
A fable of a terrifying near future by critically acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott.
Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.
Told in spare, powerful prose, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they’ve reached the final page. [source]
This kind of reminds me of Hunger Games, with the dystopian theme. I think this is her first foray into something that isn’t contemporary YA? It seems interesting, and Adele gave a glowing review on this book. Curioser and curioser, yes? I hope it goes out in Kindle. :D
