This week's WoW is . . .
Dualed by Elsie Chapman
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.
I don't know about you, but I think this sounds fucking AWESOME.
Unique. Fascinating. Action-packed. Powerful. Romantic. A million other positive adjectives.
I'm so in love with this premise that I immediately added it to my TBR list before there was a cover or even a full synopsis. It has a crazy amount of potential, and if the book is half as fantastic as that concept, I suspect it'll be one of my favorite reads of 2013. (Or 2012, depending on when I read it. Okay, so that might be my wishful thinking speaking. Your point is?)
Also, Elsie is such a sweetie that I would've wanted this even if it didn't sound so insanely cool.
Really, though, I need this book in my life.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
