meant to highlight an upcoming release we're excited for!
While We Run (When We Wake #2) by Karen Healey
Little, Brown Young Readers, 336 pages
Expected US Release Date: May 27, 2014
It's 2127, and the future is at stake . . .
Abdi Taalib thought he was moving to Australia for a music scholarship. But after meeting the beautiful and brazen Tegan Oglietti, his world was turned upside down. Tegan's no ordinary girl - she died in 2027, only to be frozen and brought back to life in Abdi's time, 100 years later.
Now, all they want is for things to return to normal (or as normal as they can be), but the government has other ideas. Especially since the two just spilled the secrets behind Australia's cryonics project to the world. On the run, Abdi and Tegan have no idea who they can trust - and, when they uncover startling new details about the program, they realize that thousands of lives may be in their hands.
Karen Healey offers a suspenseful, page-turning companion to When We Wake that will keep readers on the edge of their seats and make them call into question their own ideas about morality -- and mortality, too.
I was completely shocked how much I loved When We Wake (read my review here!), and I'm definitely anticipating this second book like crazy. It ends so well and on SUCH a cliffhanger that I just...there's an infinite amount of possibility with where this story will head, and I can't wait to find out which Karen Healey has chosen. Also, sounds like we'll get more Abdi (perhaps even his POV?) - and I will LOVE getting to know him better. He was my least favourite of the favourite characters (makes sense in my head), so I can't wait to really dig into his character more and lessen that typical vibe I got from him. And of course, I can't wait for more of Tegan's awesome personality :)
