What Am I Waiting On?

The Ward

The Ward by Jordana Frankel

Expected Publication: April 30th 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books

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.

 

Why Am I Waiting?

This is the author’s debut book and it just sounds awesome. A little bit of dystopia and science-fiction mixed together and the talk of the “passionate young scientist” caught my attention. I like the idea of Manhattan being entirely swamped by water. And mystery? Count me in. The cover also kind of just does it for me too with the impact of the gold lettering and the blue water. And the girl in the A just looks great.
