Waiting on Wednesday: Salt & Stone 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:

Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood, #2)
Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott
Expected release date: February 24th, 2014
from Scholastic Press
 What would you do to save someone you love?

In FIRE & FLOOD, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.
I love me some Victoria Scott, y'all. Fire and Flood was brilliant and as soon as I finished it I wanted the sequel. Even now I think the wait is too long. I miss Tella and guy and all the Pandora's. Okay maybe not all of them. Mainly just Maddox. I need this book.

Also, I know it's not finished, but isn't that cover gorgeous?

That's what I'm very impatiently waiting on this week. What about you?
