Waiting on Wednesday: Dust & Decay

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Dust & Decay 
by Jonathan Maberry
Published by: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Expected publication: August 30th 2011

Six months have passed since the terrifying battle with Charlie Pink-eye and the Motor City Hammer in the zombie-infested mountains of the Rot & Ruin. It’s also six months since Benny Imura and Nix Riley saw something in the air that changed their lives. Now, after months of rigorous training with Benny’s zombie-hunter brother Tom, Benny and Nix are ready to leave their home forever and search for a better future. Lilah the Lost Girl and Benny’s best friend Lou Chong are going with them.
Sounds easy. Sounds wonderful. Except that everything that can go wrong does. Before they can even leave there is a shocking zombie attack in town. But as soon as they step into the Rot & Ruin they are pursued by the living dead, wild animals, insane murderers and the horrors of Gameland –where teenagers are forced to fight for their lives in the zombie pits. Worst of all…could the evil Charlie Pink-eye still be alive?
In the great Rot & Ruin everything wants to kill you. Everything…and not everyone in Benny’s small band of travelers will make it out alive. (from Goodreads)

I about flipped when I saw this cover. It is CRAZY. Rot & Ruin has quickly become one of my favorite books. I've been telling everyone about it (even if they aren't big readers), putting it on my favorite lists and made sure to donate a copy to the book drive this past holiday. It is that awesome and I want to let as many people as I can know. I'm just sad that I have to wait until August for Dust & Decay to come out.
