Waiting on Wednesday - Wired

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Wired (Skinned #3) by Robin Wasserman
Published by Simon Pulse
Publication Date: September 14, 2010

Summary from Simon & Schuster: It's two months after the end of Crashed, and Lia is right back where she started: home, pretending to be the perfect daughter. But nothing's the way it used to be.

Lia has become the public face of the mechs, BioMax's poster girl for the up-and-coming technology, devoting her life to convincing the world that she—and the others like her—deserve to exist. Then Jude resurfaces, and brings some scandalous information with him. Is BioMax really an ally to the mechs? Or are they using the technology for a great evil...and if so, can Auden really be a part of the plan?

 Meanwhile, Lia also learns a shocking truth about the accident that resulted in her download...a truth that forces her to make a decision she can never reverse.
I originally picked up Skinned and Crashed (books 1 and 2 of the Skinned Series) to review for our library system Teen Services Blog.  These were the first books I had reach by Robin Wasserman and wasn't really sure what to expect.  But, I was blown away by both books, especially by how Ms. Wasserman weaves social and political issues into the storyline.  Needless to say, I am very much looking forward to learning about what happens next.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. I am not familiar with this series, but sound interesting. Think I might just have to check the first two out.

  2. I haven't heard of this series, but it sounds promising. Is it a bit like Uglies? Good pick!

  3. ^ It's like an inverted Uglies.

    I'm looking forward to it; I didn't love the second one, but I want to know what happens anyway.

  4. Haven't heard of this series either, but will have to look into this one now.

  5. I haven't heard of this series before. I've read Uglies (have not picked up the others yet, and there is a whole pile of TBR now, so I can't just yet), and I really enjoyed it. (I gave it 4.5/5)

    I shall have to check out the first book of this series. It looks promising.
