Me on Waiting on Wednesday (87)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: The Lives We Lost
Author: Megan Crewe
Release Date: February 12, 2013
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

From Goodreads:

First, the virus took Kaelyn’s friends. Then, her family. Now it’s taken away her home.

But she can't look back—the life she once had is gone forever.

A deadly virus has destroyed Kaelyn’s small island community and spread beyond the quarantine. No one is safe. But when Kaelyn finds samples of a vaccine in her father's abandoned lab, she knows there must be someone, somewhere, who can replicate it. As Kaelyn and her friends head to the mainland, they encounter a world beyond recognition. It’s not only the “friendly flu” that’s a killer—there are people who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the vaccine. How much will Kaelyn risk for an unproven cure, when the search could either destroy those she loves or save the human race?

Megan Crewe's second volume in the Fallen World trilogy is an action-packed journey that explores the resilience of friendship, the ache of lost love, and Kaelyn’s enduring hope in the face of the sacrifices she must make to stay alive.

Yay for Canadian YA authors. I so enjoyed the first book in the series and I can't wait for the next one. It's all wonderfully creepy and mysterious and sad. :) So much of the first book was all about Kaelyn and her struggle to survive and keep those around her safe. I hope the second will be more of the same with a little more action and suspense. :) And I love the cover, it's big and bold and draws the eye (like the first with all of its bright yellow biohazard look).


  1. Wow, this one sounds like an amazing read. Hope it's worth the wait.

    Here is our WoW!

  2. I have yet to read the first book, but I keep hearing amazing things about it. I do love the covers, and totally agree that they draw your eye! Great pick.

  3. Interesting cover choice! I like it!

  4. This is the first time I am seeing the cover for this sequel! I have the first one, signed even, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet. Looking forward to it though! :)
    My W.O.W.

  5. Oh so this is a second book in a trilogy? Wow I can't imagine what the first one was like. I'd love to get my hands on book one first and then I'd love to read this one too. It sounds incredibly and I'm looking forward to it.
    Great pick.
    Check out my WOW.

  6. I haven't read the first book. I would love to though. Great pick!
