Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.
One shocking afternoon, computers around the globe shut down in a viral catastrophe. At sixteen-year-old Adam Daley’s high school, the problem first seems to be a typical electrical outage, until students discover that cell phones are down, municipal utilities are failing, and a few computer-free cars like Adam’s are the only vehicles that function. Driving home, Adam encounters a storm tide of anger and fear as the region becomes paralyzed. Soon—as resources dwindle, crises mount, and chaos descends—he will see his suburban neighborhood band together for protection. And Adam will understand that having a police captain for a mother and a retired government spy living next door are not just the facts of his life but the keys to his survival.
*adds to Goodreads immediately* this is SO a book for me! That last line about the retired government spy has me completely intrigued too. Thanks so much for featuring this one! 😀
Happy reading! 🙂
Yay, I’m glad it made you want to read it!
Ooh, that looks amazing (And not only ‘cos I have the same name ;))! I must look out for the next year! 🙂 I haven’t done WoW posts before, but I guess I’m waiting on Alleginant *squeeeee! Allegiant!*.
Whoops. Ignore my awful spelling.
Hopefully the awesomeness of names will carry across into the book! I actually havent read Divergent yet *hides*
Ooh, is looks really good! Will have to add it to my TBR list. There’s so many books I’m waiting on it’s unreal. >.< Story of a book blogger's life, eh? 😉
Yes! I think my to-read shelf on GR is over 2000…..
Ahh, I’m really excited for this one too! I can’t wait to read it. I love the concept because it’s not that difficult to imagine it happening in real life, although it would be terrible if it did happen. Great pick!
I love books that make me think about the future, and I think this is one of them 🙂
