This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends--the Liars--whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth.
(Summary from Goodreads)

Okay, the short, descriptive lines in the summary are what really make me want to read this book. The description is already building the suspense and mystery, so I'm in! 

Author: Shannon Delany
Release Date: May 20, 2014
Published by: St. Martin's Press

Jordan, Rowen and the crews of the Tempest and the Artemesia strike out for Philedelphia to start a revolution aimed at abolishing slavery and changing their stormpowered society to one that runs on previously repressed stream innovations and will allow for true equality. But can Jordan and Rowen come back together after all the things determined to drive them apart? (Summary from Goodreads)

I cannot wait to get my hands on this one! Shannon always leaves us hanging on such cliffhangers!! Now I can finally find out what happens next to Rowen and Jordan and even little Meggie! This beautiful and heartbreaking series of a people's revolution against slavery is absolutely BRILLIANT! If you haven't tried it yet; what are you waiting for!?

What are you waiting on this week?
