THE YOUNG WORLD by Chris Weitz (WoW #167)

Posted by on September 25, 2013

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


New York City is now run by tribes of teenagers, survivors of a
mysterious Sickness that wiped out all adults and little kids. But
they’re only survivors to a point—as soon as they get too old, the
Sickness kills them, too. The teens who remain are left in possession of the bones of a modern world that doesn’t work. With resources scarce, conflict is inevitable, and the teens make sure
they are armed to the hilt.

The Young World follows Jefferson, the reluctant leader of the Washington Square tribe, and Donna, his secret crush, as they rally teens around them in an effort to find the cure to the Sickness, and change the world forever

THE YOUNG WORLD releases in 2014 from Little Brown, Co.

Not entirely sure how this one will be, but I absolutely LOVE that cover. What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Sounds interesting! Do you know if this series will be MG or YA yet? I felt from the synopsis that it could go either way and the cover art was no help. Cool pick honey, thanks for sharing! :-)
