Wednesday, June 30, 2010

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the SpineThis meme spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's up coming release is...

In the year 2098 America isn't so different from the USA of today. But, in a post-9/11 security-obssessed world, "secured" doesn't just refer to borders between countries, it also refer to borders between states. Teenagers still think they know everything, but there is no cure for cancer, as Kelsa knows first-hand from watching her father die.
The night Kelsa buries her father, a boy appears. He claims magic is responsible for the health of Earth, but  human damage disrupts its flow. The planet is dying.
Kelsa has the power to reverse the damage, but first she must accept that magic exists and see beyond her own pain in order to heal the planet. (Publisher's Summary from Amazon)

I am also anxious to see what you are waiting on!

Sort of a magical dystopia kind of thing? Interesting. I'm not normally a fan of dystopian lit, but that slant catches my attention. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
