Waiting on Wednesday (17)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we "can't-wait-to-read".

Empty by Suzanne Weyn
Release date: October 1st 2010
Summary: (taken from Goodreads)

It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be.

Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.

Teens like Nicki, Tom, and Leila may find what they need to survive. But their lives are never going to be the same again. 


The summary really intrigues me! Lately I've been loving dystopian novels and this one sounds super interesting. I can't wait (:

This one sounds really scary to me, because it seems like something that could actually happen.
