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

For this week, I am eagerly anticipating -

The Outside - 
Laura Bickle
Released: September 3, 2013
Publisher: Harcourt Children's

Synopsis: After a plague of vampires is unleashed in the world, Katie is kicked out of her Amish community for her refusal to adhere to the new rules of survival. Now in exile, she enters an outside world of unspeakable violence with only her two “English” friends and a horse by her side. Together they seek answers and other survivors—but each sunset brings the threat of vampire attack, and each sunrise the threat of starvation.

And yet through this darkness come the shining ones: luminescent men and women with the power to deflect vampires and survive the night. But can these new people be trusted, and are they even people at all?

In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, it’s up to one Amish girl to save her family, her community, and the boy she loves . . . but what will she be asked to leave behind in return?

Why i can't wait: I'm going with another sequel this week, but for good reason! I just found that this has a cover! I absolutely loved The Hallowed Ones, despite the fact that it had many area's it could have failed on. So, of course, I am desperately awaiting the sequel!

What are you waiting on? :)
