Waiting on Wednesday: Empty

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I love dystopian novels. From the classic to the contemporary, I enjoy all the “what ifs” that come with creating a world that is both plausible and horrifying. Suzanne Weyn’s upcoming release, Empty, looks like it should fit the bill perfectly. Empty will be released by Scholastic on October 1st.

It’s the near future – the very near future – and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be.

Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope – there has to be hope – just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.

Teens like Nicki, Tom, and Leila may find what they need to survive. But their lives are never going to be the same again.–From Amazon
