Waiting on Wednesday #26



Photobucket




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

My pick this week is:




Title: Dualed
Series:  Dualed, Book 1
Author: Elsie Chapman
Release date: February 26th, 2013

Summary:
Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.


*****


Why I want to read it:

It's got a gorgeous cover, intriguing, especially with that shadow being so different.  And the summary totally got to me. I really wanted this book from NetGalley, but they're only giving out limited number of ecopies at this time, which SUCKS!!!!!

So how about you? What amazing book are you waiting on this week?

    1. Ya know, I was wondering about that too! It would be interesting if each one thought they were the original and the other one was the Alt :)

  16. This is weird but the premise reminds me of Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV show where every witch has an evil twin who will try to destroy them. Ah, good times. This book sounds more grounded and gritty, an excellent intense read.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  19. I hadn't even noticed the difference in the cover until you mentioned it, but it's amazing, especially because it reflects the plot so well! I hope you still get a chance to read it soon! I'm a new follower! Hop on over if you have the time:

    1. That's a different way to look at it... Cuz it is you, and it probably does think the same way, feels the same things... Weird. Interesting. Can't wait!

    1. Yeah, it sort of is, isn't it? Though in the end you aren't really dead. But perhaps a part of you is? I guess we'll find out when it comes out ;)

  30. Ooooh, this sounds really interesting :) I'm not sure if the romance aspect is really necessary for this type of story, but I am anxious to read it to see how it plays out! I wonder if there will be a love triangle between both versions of herself and the love interest? That would be a first!
