Series: The Ward #1
Publication Date: April 30th 2013
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.

Why I’m Waiting?:
I love reading dystopians and post apocalyptics and just by looking at the cover of this you can tell it’s going to be a good one! I also like that this book takes place in a city we already know. I’m really interested in how different this water-logged Manhattan will be compared to today’s Manhattan.
