Giveaway: Wasteland (US & Canada)

WASTELAND
By Susan Kim & Laurence Klavan
Release Date: March 26, 2013

Welcome to the Wasteland. Where all the adults are long gone, and now no one lives past the age of nineteen. Susan Kim and Laurence Klavan’s post-apocalyptic debut is the first of a trilogy in which everyone is forced to live under the looming threat of rampant disease and brutal attacks by the Variants—hermaphroditic outcasts that live on the outskirts of Prin. Esther thinks there’s more to life than toiling at harvesting, gleaning, and excavating, day after day under the relentless sun, just hoping to make it to the next day. But then Caleb, a mysterious stranger, arrives in town, and Esther begins to question who she can trust. As shady pasts unravel into the present and new romances develop, Caleb and Esther realize that they must team together to fight for their lives and for the freedom of Prin.

Susan Kim & Laurence Klavan cowrote the graphic novels City Of Spies and Brain Camp.

Susan is also a five-time Emmy nominee for her work in children's television and a Writers Guild Award winner for best documentary. She wrote the stage adaptation of Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club, teaches writing at Goddard College, and is a blogger for the Huffington Post. When she was growing up, there was a chain-link fence behind her apartment that led to a small woods. After dinner, all the kids would sneak through to play in a world where no adults intruded. The memory of that has always stayed with her.

Laurence's previous novels include The Cutting Room and The Shooting Script; he won an Edgar Award for the novel Mrs. White, and his short-story collection is forthcoming. He received two Drama Desk nominations for the book and lyrics to Bed and Sofa, a musical produced by New York's Vineyard Theatre. As kids, he and his three brothers used to make epic movies in their backyard, reenacting the Alamo, the signing of the Magna Carta . . . and the end of the world. This last one involved a lot of fighting over food and property, which was, of course, what they did every day in real life.

I love me a nice and messed up post apocalyptic dystopian thriller. Nothing like a messed up world to make you appreciate the one we live in now. Or make you seriously ponder becoming a doomsday prepper, lol! Can't wait to get my hands on this book! :p
