Me on Waiting on Wednesday (130)

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

Title: The 100
Author: Kass Morgan
Release Date: September 3, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (Hachette Book Group imprint)

From Goodreads:

In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

Whenever I hear of a movie or TV deal before I hear of the book, that isn't out yet, I get wary. I think I heard about this book and the upcoming TV series adaptation at the same time, but still, it's weird.

This has the potential to be good, and I hope it is good. I'm liking the influx of sci-fi in YA. I'm curious as to how the narration will go, if it'll be in one character's point of view or in multiple POVs. Or if there'll be an count of how many of the 100 are still alive at the start and end of the book.
