Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.
Title: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Release date: November 4th, 2014
There are three rules in the Walled City: Run fast. Trust no one. Always carry your knife. Right now, my life depends completely on the first. Run, run, run.
Jin, Mei Yee, and Dai all live in the Walled City, a lawless labyrinth run by crime lords and overrun by street gangs. Teens there run drugs or work in brothels—or, like Jin, hide under the radar. But when Dai offers Jin a chance to find her lost sister, Mei Yee, she begins a breathtaking race against the clock to escape the Walled City itself.
Why I want to read it: I really enjoyed Graudin's All That Glows (see my review here) and I want to see what's next for her. Two more good things about The Walled City: One, by the characters names (and the dragon) it sounds like the book has an oriental influence; and two, I love this cover!
What are you waiting for this week?
