Waiting on Wednesday! (July 7, 2010)

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

XVI by Julia Karr
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: January 6, 2011
Publisher: Speak
Pages: 272

Summary: In the year 2150, being a girl isn’t necessarily a good thing, especially when your sixteenth (read sex-teenth) birthday is fast approaching. That in itself would be enough to make anyone more than a little nuts, what with the tattoo and all – but Nina Oberon’s life has taken a definite turn for the worse. Her mother is brutally stabbed and left for dead. Before dying, she entrusts a secret book to Nina, telling her to deliver it to Nina's father. But, first Nina has to find him; since for fifteen years he's been officially dead. Complications arise when she rescues Sal, a mysterious, and ultra hot guy. He seems to like Nina, but also seems to know more about her father than he’s letting on. Then there’s that murderous ex-government agent who’s stalking her, and just happens to be her little sister’s dad.

My Thoughts: XVI sounds amazing! The dystopian concept brings a refreshing and original quality. I am super excited and will be reading this book immediately when it comes out. Too bad it's all the way in January. :(

What are your thoughts on
XVI?
