Waiting on Wednesday (34)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly waiting for.

This week I'm waiting on Orleans by Sherri L. Smith.

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.

Sherri L. Smith delivers an expertly crafted story about a fierce heroine whose powerful voice and firm determination will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.
Orleans will be released on March 7, 2013 by Putnam Juvenile.

  2. This is the first time I have seen this. It sounds really interesting. Thanks for sharing. (I just read Taken and it features a 'Wall' too.)

  3. This is actually the first I've seen of this book and I'm not sure if it's my kind of read although I like the sound of a fierce heroine.


Hello there! (: Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one!
