Waiting on Wednesday - Prized

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme that spotlights upcoming releases and is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Prized (Birthmarked #2) by Caragh M. O'Brien
Publication Date: November 8, 2011

In the thrilling follow up to Birthmarked, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone has fled from the Enclave and now must fight for her baby sister’s survival in the matriarchal society of Sylum. Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, 16-year-old midwife Gaia Stone survives only to be captured by the people of Sylum, a dystopian society where women rule the men who drastically outnumber them, and a kiss is a crime. In order to see her sister again, Gaia must submit to their strict social code, but how can she deny her sense of justice, her curiosity, and everything in her heart that makes her whole? (Summary from Goodreads)

I'm so very excited about Prized! I really enjoyed Birthmarked, but felt like the ending was so open ended. Now we get to find out what happened to Gaia and it sounds like she's found a new society to learn about and possibly disrupt.

What not yet published book are you eagerly waiting for?
