Waiting on Wednesday (3rd October)

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

My choice for this weeks WoW is Dualed by Elsie Chapman, a dystopian which sounds absolutely amazing!!

Dualed (Dualed, #1)

   Author: Elsie Chapman
Series: Dualed
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: 26th February 2013
Pre-order Amazon: Dualed

Synopsis. (Goodreads)

Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.

Elsie Chapman’s suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and every child knows there is another out there who just might be better.

What is your WoW for this week?

  19. I feel like I'm seeing quite a few books coming out with alts or doubles-wonder if that will be a new mini-trend in non-realistic YA.
