Waiting On: The Ward by Jordana Frankel (11)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: The Ward
Author: Jordana Frankel
Release Date: April 30th, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.

However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.

Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.

[Summary Source: Goodreads]
I'm a New Yorker who LOVES her city. Therefore, I hate to love books and movies about a destroyed New York. BUT I DO. AND I READ AND WATCH THEM ALL. So I MUST read this book based solely on the first sentence of the summary.
