I'm Waiting On The Elites by Natasha Ngan

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating!

This week I chose...

Title: The Elites
Author: Natasha Ngan
Release Date: September 5, 2013

Summary from Goodreads:
'There is a rumour that the Elites don't bleed.'

Hundreds of years into the future, wars, riots, resource crises and rising sea-levels have destroyed the old civilisations. Only one city has survived: Neo-Babel, a city full of cultures - and racial tension. Fifteen-year-old Silver is an Elite, a citizen of Neo-Babel chosen to guard the city due to her superior DNA. She'd never dream of leaving - but then she fails to prevent the assassination of Neo Babel's president, setting off a chain of events more shocking and devastating than she could ever have imagined. Forced to flee the city with her best friend Butterfly (a boy with genetically-enhanced wings), Silver will have to fight to find her family, uncover the truth about Neo-Babel and come to terms with her complicated feelings for Butterfly.

I think this one sounds pretty interesting and full of action! And I love strong heroines. It doesn't get much better than a girl with superior DNA. I think the cover is pretty awesome too. 

What are you waiting on?

  2. Great pick. Thanks for sharing :)



  3. A boy with genetically enhanced wings and a girl with superior DNA that's chosen to guard the city? Sounds good to me! ~Pam

  4. This sounds so good! And I'm particularly enthusiastic about it due to the fact that I haven't read many books set in a distant future with a messed-up society. It is definitely SF-ish, which I'm not necessarily a fan of, but still it's going on me TBR.

  5. This one looks awesome -thanks for the heads up! :)
