Waiting On Wednesday || The Young World by Chris Weitz

The Young World (The Young World #1) by Chris Weitz
July 29, 2014
After a mysterious Sickness wipes out the rest of the population, the young survivors assemble into tightly run tribes. Jefferson, the reluctant leader of the Washington Square tribe, and Donna, the girl he's secretly in love with, have carved out a precarious existence among the chaos. But when another tribe member discovers a clue that may hold the cure to the Sickness, five teens set out on a life-altering road trip to save humankind.

The tribe exchanges gunfire with enemy gangs, escapes cults and militias, braves the wilds of the subway and Central Park...and discovers truths they could never have imagined.

I need to have a moment to appreciate that cover, okay?


Phew. Okay.

Let's look at that premise though: post-apocalyptic road trip? Yeah, I'm in. And with five main characters, I'm hoping for some great ensemble interactions. Plus, who doesn't like to read about vicious teenagers? I'm hoping this book is an action-packed roller coaster ride that punches me right in the feels.
