"Waiting On" Wednesday: Memento Nora by Angie Smibert
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to profile yet to be released books that we're eagerly anticipating. This week, I'm featuring Memento Nora by Angie Smibert. It will be released in April 2011.
It's a YA dystopian novel that I came across while perusing other book blogs. It sounds like a really interesting take on the dystopian genre because it also deals with issues of memory.
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
A teen struggles to hold onto her memories-and her identity-in a world that wants everyone to forget-and keep on shopping. Three dynamic teens come together to create a comic book of their memories.
There was a better synopsis somewhere, but I can't find it at the moment. Sorry =(
I was lucky enough to get selected for an ARC tour of this book from the wonderful Holly at Good Golly Miss Holly! I'm fifth on the list so I should get the book around the middle of March. But I am extremely excited to read this one; it's been on my list since I first heard about it! Can't wait =)
