"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
I first heard about it from PageTurnersBlog.
My Waiting on Wednesday this week:
Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
Publication Date: May 23, 2011
Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking.
In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.
This sounds like a really great debut. Not only is it a dystopian, but it’s about a world where people only communicate through technology, specifically the computer. Out of all the dystopians I’ve heard of, this one seems the most likely, and that’s kinda scary! I think it’ll make for a really great read, and maybe it’ll even be an eye opener. I can’t wait to read it.
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to this week?
