Release Date: June 3rd, 2014

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

In the future, food is no longer necessary—until Thalia begins to feel something unfamiliar and uncomfortable. She’s hungry.

In Thalia’s world, there is no need for food—everyone takes medication (or “inocs”) to ward off hunger. It should mean there is no more famine, no more obesity, no more food-related illnesses, and no more war. At least that's what her parents, who work for the company that developed the inocs, say. But when Thalia meets a boy who is part of an underground movement to bring food back, she realizes that most people live a life much different from hers. Worse, Thalia is starting to feel hunger, and so is he—the inocs aren’t working. Together they set out to find the only thing that will quell their hunger: real food.

H. A. Swain delivers an adventure that is both epic and fast-paced. Get ready to be Hungry.

I think this book is going to be a really interesting read. I feel like it will bring up a lot of social issues today about poverty, and gives us a glimpse of the worst case scenario happening. I find the synopsis really creepy, and it makes me wonder how Thalia starts to become hungry in the first place.

The book came out yesterday, so if you don't have a copy, GO GET IT NOW!
