Book Spotlight!

Today I am spotlighting the Dystopian book:
The Ward by Jordana Frankel!

The Ward - 
Jordana Frankel
Released: April 30, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegan Books

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.

However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.

Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.

  1. This sounds good. I have seen it and was like "Hmmm..IDK.." there are a lot of dystop's now a days. Sometimes you must weed the bad from good.
    Dystopian December what an awesome idea!
