WoW (27) Control.


ControlAuthor: Lydia Kang.
Title: Control.
Pages: 395.
Expected publication: December 19th 2013.
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers.
ISBN: 0803739044 (ISBN13: 9780803739048)
After the violent death of her father, 17 year-old Zelia loses her younger sister, Dylia, during an abduction at a foster care agency. It turns out her sister Dylia isn’t just pretty and sweet – she’s illegal. In the year 2150, DNA must be pure by law, and anyone with enhanced genes face death. Zelia’s only allies are the freak-show inhabitants of her new, underground foster home. Along with the unexpected love of a very strange boy, she will need her flaws and their illicit traits to save the only family she has left.

You know what I really love about this book? The cover! Red blood cells, something I've seen a couple of times under the microscope now. And it sounds like a good Dystopian story.

  42. Oooo... this sounds very intriguing. And dare I say, different? I mean, it's not groundbreaking or anything, but I really like the part about "freak-show inhabitants" in her underground foster-home. I will add it to my list. Thanks Mel!

  52. That is DEFINITELY a great cover, and SO fitting for the synopsis. Original dystopian storylines are so few and far between these days, but this one sounds like it might be a good read! Thank you for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW =).

  56. I haven't seen or heard a thing about this one. I didn't even realize those were red blood cells on the book cover. This one is a definite read for me, though I'm squeamish about blood so I might have to take the cover off (lol).

  58. I haven't seen this one before and it sounds kind of creepy (in a good way!)

    Thanks for stopping by!

  59. A new title! This one does sound cool, although the whole "unexpected love" thing raises a bit of a red flag for me, since I haven't had the best of luck with YA romances. Thanks for showcasing this one this week!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!

  60. Sounds awesome, yes. But I have to disagree with the cover. I didn't liked it as much as you do. I think red blood cells is weird. I might think of it as a micro-para textbook rather than a young adult fiction. :l Sorry about that, no offense. :))
