Waiting on Wednesday #11


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



The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Expected Publication: November 15th, 2011
Pages: 320

Goodreads Summary:
Words are the most dangerous weapon of all.

In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she’s spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can’t be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country’s only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime
.



This sounds really intriguing and I can't wait for it to be released.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  2. VERY interesting summary. I like the idea of a dystopia based upon speech and language (that's what it sounds like, anyway). I'm definitely keeping an eye out for this one. Nice pick!
