Waiting on Wednesday (26): The 100 by Kass Morgan

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:

Kass Morgan
Release Date:  September 3, 2013
by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth’s toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland… before it’s too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they’ve only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they’re haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust – and even love – again. (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads)

This book just sounds right up my alley!  In fact, it kind of reminds me of what I was hoping the Across the Universe series would turn out to be…  But that was still a great series, and I can’t wait to read this one!  

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!
