Waiting on Wednesday (Water Wars)Wednesday, February 02, 2011

This book looks a mazing! Thanks to La Femme Readers, I'm getting an ARC copy! WOO!
Welcome to a future where water is more precious than gold or oil-and worth killing for
Vera and her brother, Will, live in the shadow of the Great Panic, in a country that has collapsed from environmental catastrophe. Water is hoarded by governments, rivers are dammed, and clouds are sucked from the sky. But then Vera befriends Kai, who seems to have limitless access to fresh water. When Kai suddenly disappears, Vera and Will set off on a dangerous journey in search of him-pursued by pirates, a paramilitary group, and greedy corporations. Timely and eerily familiar, acclaimed author Cameron Stracher makes a stunning YA debut that's impossible to forget.
Anyway, The Water Wars is somewhat like The Hunger Games trilogy, an amazing series that you must read if you haven't done so already. I love the idea of the perfect society where something terrible is discovered by a little ole nobody. Makes for a great read! Plus the cover looks so... wicked sweet.
What are you waiting for?
