Today I’m participating in "Waiting On" Wednesday, a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight upcoming book releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I'm really excited about all of the young adult science fiction in the works in publishing-land. Like, give-it-to-me-now-yes-right-now-all-of-it!!! excited. When I see YA sci-fi that has that little extra something (be it a new-to-me storyline or a particularly intense set-up), I put the book on my wishlist. Cecil Castellucci’s upcoming sci-fi novel went onto my wishlist as soon as I read the blurb, despite the unprepossessing cover. I'm all about YA fiction that leaves the romance in the weeds when something really important happens. Because that's... life. As I said, can't wait! Tin Star releases on February 25, 2014 from Roaring Brook Press (Macmillan).
Beaten and left for dead, sixteen-year-old Tula Bane finds herself abandoned on a remote space station with aliens she must work to understand. When three humans crash-land onto the station, Tula’s desire for companionship becomes unavoidable and romantic sparks fly between her and one of the new arrivals. But just as Tula begins to concoct a plan to get off the space station and kill the man responsible for her situation, everything goes awry, and suddenly romance is the furthest thing for her mind.
What books are you waiting on?
