Waiting On, well, Thursday

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

This week's (day-late) pick is:

Sky on Fire (Monument 14 #2) by Emmy Laybourne

The world hasn't ended...yet.

In this sequel to MONUMENT 14, the group of survivors, originally trapped together in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, has split in two. Most of the kids are making a desperate run on their recently repaired school bus for the Denver airport where they hope to reunite with their parents, be evacuated to safety, and save their dying friend.

But the world outside is dark and filled with dangerous chemicals that turn people into bloodthirsty monsters, and not all the kids were willing to get on the bus. Left behind in a sanctuary that has already been disturbed once, the remaining kids try to rebuild the community they lost. But when the issues are life and death, love and hate, who can you really trust?

I love that the cover fits so well with the cover of Monument 14 - which I loved.

One of the things that can really bug me is when books in a series either don't make it clear that they are a series book or it's hard to tell which order they go in. So, I love that this book has 'Monument 14' as part of the title letting you know it goes with the first book Monument 14 and a quote 'on Monument 14' on the top as well, so readers get one more hint that there's a first book.

I really, really loved Monument 14 [reviewed it here] and after the ending left things on quite a cliffhanger for the characters I'm really anxious to read Sky on Fire and find out what happens.

Will be published May 28th by Feiwel & Friends
