Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.

However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.

Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.
Why I Can't Wait: The cover for this one recently went up on the EpicReads blog and OHMYGOSH it is so awesome!!!! Also, a flooded Manhattan isn't so far-fetched of an idea at this point in time so it might be a terrifically horrifying read..... What are you waiting on this week??


  1. Thanks for helping me add to my TBR list!!! Happy Reading! Here is my WoW for this week!

  2. FINALLY! A book that isn't Sci-Fi or some book that is labeled dystopian but isn't really. This sounds like a legit post apocalyptic/Dystopian novel and I'm SO EXCITED FOR IT!! and YES Finally, the cover is GORGEOUS! You know a book is a dystopian when the cover isn't of a pretty girl or anything like that (Divergent anyone?). EEP IM SO EXCITED!

  3. The cover is definitely eye-catching! o.O I'm somehow always fascinated by stories about flooded areas. Makes me wonder what's beneath all that water, what's inhabiting the ruins. Ren sounds like a great protagonist - I'm really curious about early reviews of this one! Thanks for highlighting it, and for stopping by my post earlier :)
