I heard about this book less than a month ago and it has already become one of my favorite covers of all time and one of my most anticipated reads of 2012. I absolutely love books like this – ones that are definitely dystopian but seem to be heavily influenced by Sci-Fi, even if they’re not hard SF themselves. And that cover!

It’s not only an awesome cover, but it totally seems to fit the book, which makes it that much cooler in my opinion. I can’t wait for September to get here!
