**Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.**
Expected Publication Date: March 5th 2013
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. Of Pandemonium, ALA Booklist noted that “like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.”
After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge
Why I Can’t Wait: I know, I know, we don’t even have a synopsis yet BUT seriously, who even needs one? (*EDIT- I just added the synopsis. I swear it was not there yesterday! LOL) I had a feeling Hana’s POV would be in this one! I love how the story is told differently in each book. Pandemonium was told in two different time frames and now this one is 2 POVs. Keeps everything nice and fresh. I have theories and I so hope they are right! I about died when I reached that killer cliffhanger at the end of Pandemonium. Lauren Oliver sure knows how to keep us hanging on the edge of our seats! Hopefully my arms won’t get too tired and make me fall off my seat in the next 8 months of waiting. *hehe* This is one of my all-time favorite series and I am so excited to see how it ends!
**For those in the US, Happy 4th of July!
