Waiting On Wednesday: The Aftermath (Jen Alexander)

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

The Aftermath
Title: The Aftermath
Author: Jen Alexander
Release Date: August 26, 2014
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Sometimes, I dream that I'm someone else.

A girl with dark hair who doesn't worry about hunger or thirst or running from flesh-eaters.

In her world, those sorts of things don't exist.

Since the spring of 2036, when the world changed forever, Claudia and a small clan of survivors have roamed the streets of a very altered Nashville: polluted and desolate, except for the ever-present threat of cannibal Hoarders. Together they must undergo punishing tests of endurance and psychological challenge sometimes with devastating consequences all just to live another day.

With food and water in dwindling supply, and with danger lurking around every corner, no one can be trusted. And as her world starts to make less and less sense, Claudia begins to realize something terrifying: she is just a pawn in some sort of game, and all of her actions are being controlled from afar by a mysterious gamer. So when she meets a maddening and fascinating outsider named Declan, who claims to be a game moderator, she must decide whether to join him in exchange for protection and access to the border.

If they play the game right, they are each other's best hope for survival and a life beyond the only world Claudia's ever known: the terrifying live-action game known as The Aftermath.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItThis. Sounds. Awesome. While on the surface it's a well-used storyline, this sounds like it's going to be one of the best of the bunch. Can't wait!

So what book are you waiting on?
