GoodReads||The Book Depository
Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.

However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.

Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.

GAH, really. You don't know why I'm waiting? Look at the fabulous cover! Just look for a second, seriously! It gives me the idea that this is going to be one seriously epic dystopian! And she RIDES A FREAKING MOTORCYCLE? (That is what a mobile is, right?) And seriously, a passionate young scientist? Here's me: O_O "Go on..." LOL. I'm really interested to see how the author plays this one out-- as more of a dystopian, or more of a slight romance? I'm leaning towards dystopian, but I've been wrong before!
