Waiting on Wednesday (21)

"Waiting on Wednesday"  is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

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?



YES, I am effing stoked for Dualed! I'm a huge fan of intense, dystopian, futuristicish books. Every time I see someone talk about Dualed I get excited.

Isn't the author just the nicest? There are a handful of authors that I adore before even having read their books and Elise is one of them. If only all people were so sweet! :)

This really does sound fantastic. The premise is enough to make me drool and that lovely cover sure isn't hurting either. ;) I am dying to read this book! :)


Awesome pick!! I totally agree that this is a must have book!!
