Waiting on Wednesday: Middle Ground by Katie Kacvinsky

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

MIDDLE GROUND (Awaken #2) by Katie Kacvinsky
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publication date: 11/20/2012
Pages: 336
Age range: 12 years
In this provocative cautionary tale for teens, the sequel to Awaken, seventeen-year-old Maddie’s rebellion against the digital-only life grows dangerous. Maddie is in Los Angeles, trying to stay out of trouble. But one night, a seemingly small act of defiance lands her in the place she fears the most: a detention center. Here, patients are reprogrammed to accept a digital existence. Maddie is now fighting for her mind, her soul, and her very life. Once again, Katie Kacvinsky paints a disturbing picture of our increasingly technology-based society.

I loved AWAKEN and couldn't wait to find out if Katie would write a sequel. My wish came true. I can't wait!

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?

I like the way this cover pairs with the cover for Awaken. Not sure if I want to read the sequel as I didn't LOVE the first book but I'll keep an eye out for reviews.
