Waiting on Wednesday: Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming books that you can't wait to read.

My anxiously awaited title this week is:

Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Publish Date: February 21, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Genre: Dystopia
Audience: Young Adult

From Goodreads:
Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but danger is never far behind.

Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago - surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness.

The two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous - and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can’t seem to elude Rhine’s father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the any means necessary.

In the sequel to Lauren DeStefano’s harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price - now that she has more to lose than ever.

When I read Wither back in March, it left me spellbound. I knew that as soon as Fever came out, I would be scrambling to read it. When Lauren DeStefano revealed the cover of Fever a few weeks ago, it left me just as breathless as I felt when I finished reading Wither. I'm hoping Simon & Schuster adds this much anticipated sequel to their monthly GalleyGrab soon!
