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

Release Date: September 4, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Aries, Clementine, Mason
and Michael have survived the first wave of the apocalypse that wiped
out most of the world's population, and turned many of the rest into
murderous Baggers. Now, they're hiding out in an abandoned house in
Vancouver with a ragtag group of surviving teens, and trying to figure
out their next move.
Aries is trying to lead, but it's hard to
be a leader when there are no easy answers, and every move feels wrong.
Clementine is desperate to find her brother Heath, but it's impossible
to know where he'd be, even if he is still alive. Michael is still
haunted by the memories of his actions during his harrowing struggle to
survive. And Mason is struggling with something far worse: the fear that
he may be a danger to his friends.
As the Baggers begin to
create a new world order, Aries, Clementine, Mason and Michael will have
to trust and rely on each other in order to survive.
Considering the blog event going on, I think I'll go with an upcoming book by a Canadian author. :)
Whenever I realize there are (fairly) local authors that I haven't met, I kind of feel like a jerk. Especially if I've read their books. I loved Jeyn's first book, Dark Inside. It was so dark and creepy and really really creepy. And when they were in an area I recognized it really amped up the creepy. It's been a little while since I read the first book, so I think I'll be ready for this when the release date comes around. ;)
