Waiting on Wednesday: The Registry by Shannon Stoker

April 17, 2013
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases the books people are eagerly awaiting.
***
My WoW pick for today is Shannon Stoker’s The Registry, which is supposedly not only amazing, but similar to Lauren Oliver’s Delirium, which we all know I’m obsessed with. Needless to say, I’m excited for this book and can’t wait to read it.
The Registry saved the country from collapse. But stability has come at a price. In this patriotic new America, girls are raised to be brides, sold at auction to the highest bidder. Boys are raised to be soldiers, trained by the state to fight to their death.

Nearly eighteen, beautiful Mia Morrissey excitedly awaits the beginning of her auction year. But a warning from her married older sister raises dangerous thoughts. Now, instead of going up on the block, Mia is going to escape to Mexico—and the promise of freedom.

All Mia wants is to control her own destiny—a brave and daring choice that will transform her into an enemy of the state, pursued by powerful government agents, ruthless bounty hunters, and a cunning man determined to own her . . . a man who will stop at nothing to get her back.
 
The Registry is available June 11th, 2013.
