Waiting on Wednesday (#4): The Glass Arrow by Kirsten Simmons






Author: Kristen Simmons
Publisher: Tor Teen
Expected Release Date: February 10th, 2015


Synopsis (from Goodreads):


The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.
 


Unfortunately, my English class decided to read Frankenstein and Wuthering Heights. Both were great novels (although Frankenstein was the best), but I was a little sad to hear we weren't going to be able to actually read the Handmaid's Tale... So I read it myself!

I can't wait because next week, this book hits shelves! I've read a lot of books with a similar gist, but I feel like this will be a knock out! I heard many positive reviews, and I am seriously stoked for this book!
