Waiting on Wednesday (4)

 "Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted at Breaking-The-Spine.com that spotlights upcoming release that we're eagerly anticipating.  This week I'm waiting on... 


Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Publication Date: March 22nd, 2011


(From Goodreads): 
What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she trusts, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limited time she has left. 



A lot of people seem to have read ARCs of Wither-- unfortunately, I'm not one of them.  Reviews on this one are rave, and as a huge dystopia fan, this is a book I've had my eye on for a while.  The cover is one of the 2011's most gorgeous to be sure.  Too bad the release date is still so far away!
