Waiting on Wednesday (18) — Dark Parties by Sara Grant

Posted by on December 22, 2010
“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)
Dark Parties
    Dark Parties is a dystopian novel about a country that generations ago closed its borders to people and ideas. No one knows what exists outside their protected society. Neva and her best friend secretly plot to force the government to open its borders. Anyone who threatens the government seems to disappear mysteriously. Neva receives a message from her grandma who vanished without a trace 10 years ago, inviting her to escape to the outside. Now she has a choice–stay and save her country or leave and save herself.
Seems pretty… mysterious and interesting, though the blurb doesn’t say much.
Dark Parties is expected to be released in April 2011 from Little Brown.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Wow this one sounds fantastic, Hafsah. I have actually never heard of this one, until now of course. I will definitely add it to my wishlist. Great pick, Hafsa! =)

  2. I've seen this book lurking around. It looks pretty interesting. Ever since the Hunger Games I have been fascinated with the Dystopian genre. Looking forward to this one!

  3. How to Knit a Heart Back Home
    By Rachael Herron
    Publication date: March 1, 2011

    Lucy Harrison sells books by day and volunteers with the Cypress Hollow fire department by night. Her life is just the way she likes it—full, even-keeled, and smooth—until bad-boy ex-cop Owen Bancroft comes back to town. Lucy has always been fearless, never scared about diving in to help others. When it comes to risking her heart, however, she realizes she's absolutely terrified.

    In a small town like Cypress Hollow, everyone knows your business—and there is nowhere to hide. Then Lucy and Owen are thrown together by the discovery of the lost work of local legend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Now Owen, adrift and struggling to redefine himself as a civilian without a badge, will have to learn how to open himself up to life's new possibilities . . . while Lucy decides just how much of herself she's willing to gamble on love.
