Hello gentle reader,
this week I’m waiting on Guardian (Proxy #2) by Alex London (expected publication: 29th May 2014 by Philomel). It’s a YA Science-Fiction sequel to Proxy, which came out in July 2013. It’s no secret that I loved Proxy (one of the best YA books of 2013, in my opinion) and I can’t wait to find out what happens in the second book.
Since I don’t want to post any spoilers in case you haven’t read the first book, I’m pasting below the blurb from Proxy (from Goodreads):
Knox was born into one of the City’s wealthiest families. A Patron, he has everything a boy could possibly want—the latest tech, the coolest clothes, and a Proxy to take all his punishments. When Knox breaks a vase, Syd is beaten. When Knox plays a practical joke, Syd is forced to haul rocks. And when Knox crashes a car, killing one of his friends, Syd is branded and sentenced to death.
Syd is a Proxy. His life is not his own.
Then again, neither is Knox’s. Knox and Syd have more in common than either would guess. So when Knox and Syd realize that the only way to beat the system is to save each other, they flee. Yet Knox’s father is no ordinary Patron, and Syd is no ordinary Proxy. The ensuing cross-country chase will uncover a secret society of rebels, test both boys’ resolve, and shine a blinding light onto a world of those who owe and those who pay. Some debts, it turns out, cannot be repaid.
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by book blogger Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
