Waiting on Wednesday (15): Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week:

Emmy Laybourne
Release Date:  May 28, 2013
by Feiwel & Friends

The world hasn’t ended…yet.

In this sequel to MONUMENT 14, the group of survivors, originally trapped together in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, has split in two. Most of the kids are making a desperate run on their recently repaired school bus for the Denver airport where they hope to reunite with their parents, be evacuated to safety, and save their dying friend.

But the world outside is dark and filled with dangerous chemicals that turn people into bloodthirsty monsters, and not all the kids were willing to get on the bus. Left behind in a sanctuary that has already been disturbed once, the remaining kids try to rebuild the community they lost. But when the issues are life and death, love and hate, who can you really trust? (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads)

I just recently read Monument 14 (my review to come soon!) and I really enjoyed it.  So much so, that I read the book in a day!  That doesn’t happen very often for me.  Anyway, I’m very excited to see what happens in the sequel, Sky on Fire!

What book are you waiting on?  Let me know, or leave a link to your WoW post in the comments, and I’ll stop by your blog!

    Monument 14 was so good, and with the incredibly open ending I can't wait for the second book! I can't believe we have to wait til May.

    I'm sad that I never read the first book. I went to her signing and I have the book but I just haven't read it yet. Every time I think about this series I think about how Emmy Laybourne was in Superstar! "SUPERSTAR" LOL…only because while I was at the signing I kept thinking, "who the heck is that?" Until I figured it out.

    I wasn't really trying that hard to read Monument 14, but knowing that you read it in one day has tipped the scale to Want To Read Soon. Good job, Andrea! ;)

    Waiting on sequels is about as much fun as reading them! I love being excited for books!
