Waiting on Wednesday #65

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

Taken by Erin Bowman
Publisher: HarperTeen
Expected Publication: April 16th, 2013
Pages: 352
Goodreads Summary:
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?

I could keep staring at this cover forever. These colors - the whole composition - are so beautiful and make me want to read this book immediately. I'm a real cover whore. :D But the summary sounds equally awesome, so I really hope that Taken will live up to my expectations. Too bad it's still so looong until its release.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
