Waiting on Wednesday #5



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is a perfect way to highlight books that we are waiting patiently to be released... it is also a sure-fire way to watch your TBR pile grow!


Ever since he was a young boy, music has coursed through the veins of eighteen-year-old Anthem—the Corp has certainly seen to that. By encoding music with addictive and mind-altering elements, the Corp holds control over all citizens, particularly conduits like Anthem, whose life energy feeds the main power in the Grid.

Anthem finds hope and comfort in the twin siblings he cares for, even as he watches the life drain slowly and painfully from his father. Escape is found in his underground rock band, where music sounds free, clear, and unencoded deep in an abandoned basement. But when a band member dies suspiciously from a tracking overdose, Anthem knows that his time has suddenly become limited. Revolution all but sings in the air, and Anthem cannot help but answer the call with the chords of choice and free will. But will the girl he loves help or hinder him?

Expected Publication: May 7 2013

Why am I so eagerly awaiting this release you ask?

The cover is pretty cool!  Looks like it matches what the story is about.  I love that the main character is a guy because I love having the different point of view.  Most YA books are from the girl's perspective so this will make a nice change.  I also love his name, Anthem sounds so cool!

And how unique does this story sound?  The music that flows through him is harnessed to be used as power, an underground rock band, revolution... yes this is going to be super cool.
