First, I KNOW I am an absolutely sucky person, I've been horrible at returning comments this past week (since last WoW!). But I promise I haven't forgotten and I will go through every single one of those posts and visit the lovely people back!
Secondly, this week's pick I have a strong feeling will be EVERYWHERE today, well, maybe because this author is just so pure awesome she has landed herself a plus-one on the Holy Trinity of Authors. I'm not kidding when I say her writing is amaze-balls.
This Is Not A Test
by Courtney Summers
It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up.
As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone’s motivations to survive begin to change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life–and death–inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?
This Is Not A Test is released June 2012 from St. Martin's Press
that is all.
