Waiting on Wednesday (9)


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Forsaken (The Forsaken, #1)


Title: The Forsaken
Author: Lisa M. Stasse
Expected Publication: July 10, 2012
Why I'm Waiting: This one just sounds really interesting.  I love stories about people fighting for freedom and change. Basically, I love dystopian novels. Also, I loved the cover! Luckily, the wait for this one is almost over! :)

Goodreads Description:

A thought-provoking and exciting start to a riveting new dystopian trilogy.

As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up.

The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.


What are you waiting on?
