Waiting on Wednesday #46: Renegade by J.A. Souders


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

Renegade by J.A. Souders
Publisher: Tor Teen
Expected Publication: Fall 2012
Goodreads Summary:
Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie. Her memories have been altered. Her mind and body aren’t under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb... and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.

Doesn't this sound awesome? So... different, and for me different is really good. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this - already dying to read it! Is it fall already?

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  21. This does sound very different and fantastic. It kind of gives off a Rapunzel vibe...with the guy who stumbles into her life, makes her realize that she's been misled, and to top it all off an evil mom who's not really her mom? Sounds exciting! :) Totally adding this!

  26. It most definitely sounds good! Gosh, there's so many awesome looking books out there... I'd like to complain as the time's not enough to read them within, but I totally can't! Need more awesome books;) I'm sure it'll end up being a great pick!
