Waiting On Wednesday (24)

I have not read Mockingjay. Amazon hasn't delivered it, so I am not checking any blog posts or tweets til I have finished Mockingjay. Paranoid, yes. Rightfully paranoid, I think so.

Anyways, here's my Waiting On Wednesday! (Which is actually available at Netgalley if you simply can't wait.)

Trickster's Girl by Hilari Bell

In the year 2098 America isn't so different from the USA of today. But, in a post-9/11 security-obssessed world, "secured" doesn't just refer to borders between countries, it also refer to borders between states. Teenagers still think they know everything, but there is no cure for cancer, as Kelsa knows first-hand from watching her father die.

The night Kelsa buries her father, a boy appears. He claims magic is responsible for the health of Earth, but  human damage disrupts its flow. The planet is dying. 

Kelsa has the power to reverse the damage, but first she must accept that magic exists and see beyond her own pain in order to heal the planet.    

Coming January 3rd from Harcourt


A combination of dystopia AND magic? Um, yes please.
