Waiting on Wednesday (19) — Water Wars by Cameron Stracher

Posted by on December 29, 2010
“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

Welcome to a future where water is more precious than gold or oil – and worth killing for.
 
Vera and her brother, Will, live in the shadow of the Great Panic, in a country that has collapsed from environmental catastrophe. Water is hoarded by governments, rivers are dammed, and clouds are sucked from the sky. But then Vera befriends Kai, who seems to have limitless access to fresh water. When Kai suddenly disappears, Vera and Will set off on a dangerous journey in search of him-pursued by pirates, a paramilitary group, and greedy corporations. Timely and eerily familiar, acclaimed author Cameron Stracher makes a stunning YA debut that’s impossible to forget.
I like the sound of this one. Plus its pretty unique.
Water Wars is expected to be released on January 1st 2011 by Sourcebooks Fire.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
