Waiting On Wednesday: After The End


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

What I'm eagerly anticipating:


Title: After The End
Author: Amy Plum
Genre: YA SciFi/Dystopia
Expected Release Date: May 6th by Harper Teen

From Goodreads: She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

Why I'm anticipating it: 


The synopsis of this book reminds me of M. Night Shymalan's The Village, and I loved the twist at the end of that film.  I expect that this will be about more than the 'why the hell did my parents lie to me?' kinda thing. I get the feeling that there is some kind of conspiracy and that Juneau's parents had to hide her from some big mean corporation and she is special in someway. You know, that kinda thing. And I love adventure/quest/survival stories, so this book looks like it should be right up my alley. I can't wait to get my hands on it.


Does this book seem like something you would be interested in?
