Waiting on Wednesday (105)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick this week is

Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts
Since mankind began, civilizations have always fallen: the Romans, the Greeks, the Aztecs…Now it's our turn. Huge earthquakes rock the world. Cities are destroyed. But something even more awful is happening. An ancient evil has been unleashed, turning everday people into hunters, killers, crazies.

Mason's mother is dying after a terrible car accident. As he endures a last vigil at her hospital bed, his school is bombed and razed to the ground, and everyone he knows is killed. Aries survives an earthquake aftershock on a bus, and thinks the worst is over when a mysterious stranger pulls her out of the wreckage, but she's about to discover a world changed forever. Clementine, the only survivor of an emergency town hall meeting that descends into murderous chaos, is on the run from savage strangers who used to be her friends and neighbors. And Michael witnesses a brutal road rage incident that is made much worse by the arrival of the police--who gun down the guilty party and then turn on the bystanding crowd.

Where do you go for justice when even the lawmakers have turned bad? These four teens are on the same road in a world gone mad. Struggling to survive, clinging on to love and meaning wherever it can be found, this is a journey into the heart of darkness – but also a journey to find each other and a place of safety.
I like dystopian just as much as the next person does, so as soon as I heard about this upcoming release, I knew I had to add it to my wishlist immediately for a variety of reasons. For one, the premise sounds awesome. Secondly, I love it's going to tell the story of four teens. Lastly, I adore the cover. It's simple but very pretty and eye-catching. In all, I'm hoping I'll LOVE this one!

Dark Inside comes out November 1, 2011!
