Waiting on Wednesday 5-23-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.

This week I am really pining for Middle Ground by Katie Kacvinsky. I loved Awaken and I am really looking forward to what is coming next in the story. I read Awaken right when it came out so it has been an agonizing wait for Middle Ground, and it's still a long way off.

Overview

In the sequel to Awaken, seventeen-year-old Maddie is in LA, is trying to stay out of trouble. But she can't quell the fire that rages within her against the digital life, and one night, a seemingly small act of rebellion lands Maddie in the place she fears the most: a detention center. Here, under the guise of rehabilitation, patients are reprogramed to accept the digital life. When Maddie discovers what goes on here, her fight shifts. She's no longer just fighting against the digital life. She's fighting for her mind, her soul, and her life. Once again, Katie Kacvinsky paints a disturbing picture of what the future holds if we're not careful.




I really cannot wait for this book. I am slowly dying waiting for it. It's a must read book for me and November can't come soon enough. I would love to know what books you are waiting for this Wednesday. Leave me a link and I will check it out.

    1. You should definitely read the first one. It's a really great book. It's set in the future where everything is run by computers and basically nothing is real anymore. Everything is digital and there is no paper or books. Even trees are synthetic.
