Waiting On Wednesday (97) — THE HAVEN by Carol Lynch Williams

Posted by on August 1, 2012

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

The Haven

For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories.

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they’ve been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?

THE HAVEN will be released April 16th 2013 from St. Martin’s Griffin.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. This is a fabulous pick, Hafsah! 2020 is NOT that far away. Boy, I hope our world hasn't fallen into the state of Haven by then! >.< I am definitely picking this book up when it debuts.
