ICONS by Margaret Stohl (WoW #126)

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

Icons (Icons #1)

Your heart beats only with their permission.

Everything changed on The Day. The day the windows shattered. The day the power stopped. The day Dol’s family dropped dead. The day Earth lost a war it didn’t know it was fighting.

Since then, Dol has lived a simple life in the countryside — safe from the shadow of the Icon and its terrifying power. Hiding from the one truth she can’t avoid.

She’s different. She survived. Why?

When Dol and her best friend, Ro, are captured and taken to the Embassy, off the coast of the sprawling metropolis once known as the City of Angels, they find only more questions. While Ro and fellow hostage Tima rage against their captors, Dol finds herself drawn to Lucas, the Ambassador’s privileged son. But the four teens are more alike than they might think, and the timing of their meeting isn’t a coincidence. It’s a conspiracy.

ICONS will be released May 7th, 2013 from Little Brown Books.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    Icons sounds amazing! I really can't wait to read this new book by Margaret Stohl, and see what she can do without her co-writer. Great pick!

    I'm so excited for this, especially because it's Margaret Stohl writing it! The synopsis is so mysterious. I wish it was a little more descriptive, but at the same time, it makes me want to read the book even more! Awesome pick!

    The cover looks pretty cool! It also sounds like a good book, I want to read it too! This one for me wouldn't be YA because of the cover but they are teens right
