Waiting on Wednesday (27th June)

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

My choice for this weeks WoW is a Young Adult Sci-Fi novel titled Taken by Erin Bowman; I have to admit the the synopsis has me completely and utterly intrigued.

What are you looking forward to?

Taken (Taken, #1)
Author: Erin Bowman
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: YA – Sci-Fi
Release Date: 16th April 2013
Amazon Pre-order: Taken

Synopsis. (Goodreads)

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?

What are you anxiously anticipating this week?
