Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is my first crack at it.
I’m waiting on… The Returners by Gemma Malley.
Description from Amazon:
Will Hodge's life is a mess! His mother is dead, he has no friends and he thinks he is being followed by a strange group of people who tell him they know him. But Will can't remember them ...at first. And when he does he doesn't like what he can remember. While Will is struggling with unsettling memories, he learns that his past is a lot deeper than many people's, and he has to find out if he is strong enough to break links with the powerful hold that history has on him. This compelling novel, set in an alternate future, challenges readers to consider the role we all have to play in making our society, and asks how much we are prepared to stand up for what's right.
Oh-so-mysterious! I really haven’t heard anything about this one, but the description has got me intrigued. I just have to read the words ‘alternate future’ and I’m so there.
What are The Returners returning from? What's with the barbed-wire and graves deal on the cover? Why can’t I find any more information about this one *anywhere*?!
Plus, it’s by Gemma Malley, author of one of my favourite dystopian novels, The Declaration.
Release date for this one is currently February 2010. So I’ll be waiting… and waiting… and waiting.
