Waiting on Wednesday: The Haven

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Haven
by Carol Lynch Williams
Published by St. Martin's Griffin
Publication Date: April 16, 2013
For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories.

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they’ve been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?
(from Goodreads)
Parts of this book sounds a little bit like Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro which floored me. So have the other books by Carol Lynch Williams that I've read. I've already read Glimpse and listened to the audiobook of The Chosen One and I just finished Waiting her latest book about a girl who is trying to continue on after the death of her brother. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to find out what other books she's written that I must read and found The Haven. It doesn't come out until April of 2013, but she has many other for me to read until then. I love discovering an author with an extensive backlist so it makes the waiting for their upcoming titles bearable.

  2. This book definitely sounds interesting. I'm a sucker for books set in the future and the post-apocalyptic like, way the earth is described is completely fascinating for me. I will definitely add this one on my to-read list! Great pick, thanks for sharing.
    Check out my WOW.

  3. Oh yea, sign me up! This sounds very promising and right up my alley. I think a pre-order is needed :)

  4. I saw this one over on Giselle's blog last week and yes, it looks pretty awesome! And the cover is so spooky!
