Waiting On Wednesday [@FeiwelFriends @MacKidsBooks @HeatherASwain]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:



SUPERMOON by H.A. Swain

A futuristic thriller about the colonization of and culture clashes between the Moon and Earth from H.A. Swain, the author of Hungry and Gifted.

Sol is the month between June and July on the thirteen-month Moon calendar. It's the only time teenagers have to themselves between rigorous scientific training and their ultimate lab assignments in their colony on the Moon. Their families emigrated from Earth to build better lives; but life on the Moon is far from perfect, as Uma learns on the eve of Sol.

Uma meets an Earthen girl who becomes a fast friend, and much more. What Uma doesn't know is that the girl is assigned to infect Uma with a plague that a rogue faction of Earthen scientists hope will wipe out Moon soldiers. Will Uma be the cause of a pandemic? Whom can she trust, and moreover, whom does she love?

Why?

There are people that live on the moon - and they aren't magical or aliens, at least not based on that description. I love that there are people on Earth and people on the Moon.

Blend together bits from Adaptation  by Malinda Lo and Another Earth and factor in how much I enjoy novels set on the moon (Artemis, Winter, 172 Hours on the Moon) - plus the fact that I very much liked Hunger- and you have parts of why I want to read SuperMoon.  There are people on the moon, there are Moon soldiers, rogue Earth scientist, love - with some anxiety and tension and will-she's - it all sounds so good.


That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
