Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights our eagerly-anticipated reads. And for this week, here's mine:
Author: Jennifer Rush
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Released: 2nd January 2013
When you can’t trust yourself, who can you believe?
Everything about Anna’s life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There’s Nick, Cas, Trev . . . and Sam, who’s stolen Anna’s heart. When the Branch decides it’s time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.
Anna is torn between following Sam or staying behind in the safety of her everyday life. But her father pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs. There’s just one problem. Sam and the boys don’t remember anything before living in the lab—not even their true identities.
Now on the run, Anna soon discovers that she and Sam are connected in more ways than either of them expected. And if they’re both going to survive, they must piece together the clues of their past before the Branch catches up to them and steals it all away.
Summary taken from GoodReads
Lately I've been reading a bit more of the sci-fi stuff and the idea of genetically altered boys intrigues me; it's sounds quite sad as well. Also interesting to note is that I just read a book with an Anna and Sam and really enjoyed it! Talk about coincidence. I wasn't sure about the cover initially but I think it kinda works.
What about you? What are you waiting for this week?
