Waiting on Taken

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine 
where bloggers can showcase a book they are waiting on.

For my choice this week I chose a book I came across recently.  I absolutely love the cover, all the colors and mysterious feel.  My Waiting on Wednesday #4 pick:

 

Taken 
By: Erin Bowman
Publication Date: April 16, 2013 by HarperTeen
352 pages
Summary:
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive. 

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

What did you choose for this week's Waiting on Wednesday?  Leave me a comment and let me know!
