Title: Orleans by Sherri L. SmithWant? Add to your Goodreads list!
Release Date: March 7th 2013
Published by: Putnam Juvenile
Summary (from Goodreads):
First came the storms.
Then came the Fever.
And the Wall.
After a string of devastating hurricanes and a severe outbreak of Delta Fever, the Gulf Coast has been quarantined. Years later, residents of the Outer States are under the assumption that life in the Delta is all but extinct… but in reality, a new primitive society has been born.
Fen de la Guerre is living with the O-Positive blood tribe in the Delta when they are ambushed. Left with her tribe leader’s newborn, Fen is determined to get the baby to a better life over the wall before her blood becomes tainted. Fen meets Daniel, a scientist from the Outer States who has snuck into the Delta illegally. Brought together by chance, kept together by danger, Fen and Daniel navigate the wasteland of Orleans. In the end, they are each other’s last hope for survival.
Why I'm waiting for Orleans:
All I can say is: Want. Want. Want! Tribes based on the type of your blood? Quarantined cities? It even has outer and inner states. Savage worlds on the outside? How does your blood get tainted? My brain is getting to excited for this novel. Yes. Yes. Yes! Why does this book have to sound so good? Fen sounds like such a kick-ass heroine.
Title: Proxy (Proxy #1) by Alex LondonWant? Add to your Goodreads list!
Release Date: June 18th 2013
Published by: Philomel
Summary (from Goodreads):
Knox was born into one of the City’s wealthiest families. A Patron, he has everything a boy could possibly want—the latest tech, the coolest clothes, and a Proxy to take all his punishments. When Knox breaks a vase, Syd is beaten. When Knox plays a practical joke, Syd is forced to haul rocks. And when Knox crashes a car, killing one of his friends, Syd is branded and sentenced to death.
Syd is a Proxy. His life is not his own.
Then again, neither is Knox’s. Knox and Syd have more in common than either would guess. So when Knox and Syd realize that the only way to beat the system is to save each other, they flee. Yet Knox’s father is no ordinary Patron, and Syd is no ordinary Proxy. The ensuing cross-country chase will uncover a secret society of rebels, test both boys’ resolve, and shine a blinding light onto a world of those who owe and those who pay. Some debts, it turns out, cannot be repaid.
Why I'm waiting for Proxy:
This somehow reminds me of The Lost Girl, boy version. What secret does Knox and Syd's existence have? Their set-up is kind of similar as having a clone who'll face all of the consequences of the wrong things you did. And it sounds scientific and action packed I'm sure this'll be one heck of a read!
