(created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)
She plots to escape the vicious Darwin West, his cruel Overseers, and the daily struggle to gather the life-prolonging Water that keeps the Congregants alive and gives Darwin his wealth and power. But if Ruby leaves, the Congregation will die without the secret ingredient that makes the Water special: her blood.
So she stays.
But when Ruby meets Ford, the new Overseer who seems barely older than herself, her desire for freedom is too strong. He’s sympathetic, irresistible, forbidden—and her only access to the modern world. Escape with Ford would be so simple, but can Ruby risk the terrible price, dooming the only world she’s ever known?
Drought seems like a pretty interesting book. I haven’t seen it until today, and I like the cover and the summary. Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!
Drought will be released on January 11th, 2011 from Egmont USA.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
