Waiting on Wednesday (14)

XVI by Julia Karr
(Penguin/January 6, 2011)

In the year 2150, being a girl isn’t necessarily a good thing, especially when your sixteenth (read sex-teenth) birthday is fast approaching. That in itself would be enough to make anyone more than a little nuts, what with the tattoo and all – but Nina Oberon’s life has taken a definite turn for the worse. Her mother is brutally stabbed and left for dead. Before dying, she entrusts a secret book to Nina, telling her to deliver it to Nina's father. But, first Nina has to find him; since for fifteen years he's been officially dead. Complications arise when she rescues Sal, a mysterious, and ultra hot guy. He seems to like Nina, but also seems to know more about her father than he’s letting on. Then there’s that murderous ex-government agent who’s stalking her, and just happens to be her little sister’s dad.

Ooo! Another future + dystopian novel! There are a lot of those coming out next year which is nice, since I'm a fan of dystopian novels & movies! I never realized how much I enjoyed dystopian works until my friend and I started discussing some of the movies we had seen (Equilibrium, Children of Men, etc) a while ago, but dystopian works always leave you with a lot to think about!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
