Two books I am anxiously awaiting...
This World We Live In
by Susan Beth Pfeffer
The Last Survivors, Book 3
It's been a year since a meteor collided with the moon, catastropically altering the earth's climate. For Miranda Evans life as she knew it no longer exists. Her friends and neighbors are dead, the landscape is frozen, and food is increasingly scarce.
The struggle to survive intensifies when Miranda's father and stepmother arrive with a baby and three strangers in tow. One of the newcomers is Alex Morales, and as Miranda's complicated feelings for him turn to love, his plans for the future thwart their relationship. Then a devestating tornado hits the town of Howell, and Miranda makes a decision that will change their lives forever.
A Conspiracy of Kings
by Megan Whalen Turner
Sophos is the very reluctant heir to the King of Sounis. He would prefer to be a scholar, to read poetry, study philosophy, count the ridges on grasshopper wings, or the growth rings on the stumps of olive trees. But what he wants doesn't really matter until the day all his responsibilities are forcibly taken away and he has a chance to decide his fate for himself.
