I literally jumped up and down when I got a package from Simon and Schuster. Inside the package was:
Wither by Lauren DeStefano; coming March 2011.
Here is the synopsis for Wither (from the back of the ARC):
In the not-too-distant future, because of genetic engineering, every human is a ticking time bomb- males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. To keep the population from dying out, girls are kidnapped and sold into polygamous marriages.
When sixteen-year-old Rhine is taken, she enters a world of wealth and privilege that both entices and terrifies her. She has everything she ever wanted- expect freedom. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to escape before it is too late.
Injane by Douglas K Pearson
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Most people think I'm crazy because I see things they cannot. But if they saw the blood and the torture, or felt an ounce of the pain I feel, they would know I'm not insane. No one believes me and that makes me more alone than I feel. To those who meet me for the first time, I'm Jane; once they hear my one-sided conversations and terrified screams, they refer to me as Injane.
Thank you to the people @ Simon and Schuster and Pot-Boilers Publishing!
So... what did you all get this week? Anything good?
