Waiting on Wednesday: Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott

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

My pick this week is:

Fire & Flood
Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott
Expected release date: February 25th, 2014
from Scholastic Press

A modern day thrill ride, where a teen girl and her animal companion must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life—and her own.

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?


It's by Victoria Scott, how could I not want to read it?? Victoria is as lovely as the books she writes so of course I cannot wait to read this. It sounds so different and almost Hunger Games-ey. Advance copies of this have been pretty hard to get ahold of, but I'm determined.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
