Waiting On Wednesday (17)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. This week I’m waiting on,

Saving Sky
by Diane Stanley
Release Date: September 1st
Description via Goodreads

The country is at war, terrorists strike at random, widespread rationing is in effect, and the power grid is down. But thirteen-year-old Sky Brightman is remarkably untouched by it all. She lives off the grid on sixty acres of rural New Mexico ranch land with chores to do and horses to ride and no television or internet to bring disturbing news into her family's adobe house. Sky's schoolmates think she's a little weird.

Then a string of mysterious arrests begins, and her new friend, Kareem, becomes a target. Sky is finally forced to confront the world in all its complexity. Summoning her considerable courage and ingenuity, she takes a stand against injustice. With humor, hope, and fierce determination, she proves that even a child can change the world.

What book are you “Waiting On”?


  1. Before a year I watched a movie(Machuca) with a straight opposite theme - 'Children cannot influence a lot(not a main theme but I took it in this way). I didn't like this movie. So I hope this novel will be interesting.

  2. This sure sounds like a very special and promising book. Not the typical romance I normally read but I will definitely add it to my wishlist.

    my wow

  3. This sounds interesting, and a little frightening considering this seems to be a direction things could be going. I'll have to check it out! I'm waiting on THE TENSION OF OPPOSITES. It's out and on my to be read pile. Can't wait to get to it!

  4. Sounds interesting! I wouldn't mind checking it out.

    It also sounds a bit like How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff, which I've also been meaning to get to! Arrgh...So many promising books, lol.
