Waiting On Wednesday (35)...

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that I am eagerly anticipating.

This week's Waiting on Wednesday pick is: The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher

Publication Date: January 1, 2011


Welcome to a future where water is more precious than gold or oil-and worth killing for

Vera and her brother Will live in the shadow of the Great Panic, in a country that has collapsed from environmental catastrophe. Water is hoarded by governments, rivers are dammed, and clouds are sucked from the sky. But then Vera befriends Kai, who seems to have limitless access to fresh water. When Kai suddenly disappears, Vera and Will set off on a dangerous journey in search of him-pursued by pirates, a paramilitary group, and greedy corporations. Timely and eerily familiar, acclaimed author Cameron Stracher makes a stunning YA debut that's impossible to forget.

I am excited to read some new dystopian books, and this one sounds like it could be great!

What are you waiting for?

Swords are for fighting,


  1. Oh my word, this sounds amazing!!! I can't believe I haven't heard of this before. Thanks so much for posting about it. I'll be looking it up.

  2. Nice pick, sounds interesting. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

  3. Love the dystopian aspect of this one really excited about getting it soon too.

  4. I don't know if I'd like the book since dystopias aren't really my thing, but I love the cover.
