Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spines.
I’ve read almost all of Lauren Oliver’s books. I was on the fence for this one but read an amazing review and a suggested reading style for it. It hyped me a bit and I believe she’ll be at Yall Fest. The only thing I’m not sure about is if I want to pre-order it or picked up a signed copy at Yall Fest!

Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. ‘A sickly child’, her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father’s connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she’s always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father’s name seems inextricably linked to it.
Amidst the frenzy outside the institute’s walls, Lyra – or number 24 as she is known as at Haven – and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven’s purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever…
