Waiting on Wednesday: Taken by Erin Bowman

Hi, everyone!


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:


TITLE: Taken
SERIES: Taken, Book #1
AUTHOR: Erin Bowman 
PUBLISHER: Harper Teen
EXPECTED PUBLICATION DATE: April 16, 2013
FORMAT: Hardcover, 352 pages
GENRE: Young Adult, Science Fiction/Dystopia
ISBN: 9780062117267
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

Another dystopian series that sounds so good!
