Hello gentle reader,
this week, I’m waiting on ECHO BOY by Matt Haig (expected publication: 6th February 2014 by Bodley Head Children’s Books). I loved THE RADLEYS by this author (a literary novel with vampires) and I can’t wait to read this YA Sci-Fi.
Audrey’s father taught her that to stay human in the modern world, she had to build a moat around herself; a moat of books and music, philosophy and dreams. A moat that makes Audrey different from the echoes: sophisticated, emotionless machines, built to resemble humans and to work for human masters.
Daniel is an echo – but he’s not like the others. He feels a connection with Audrey; a feeling Daniel knows he was never designed to have, and cannot explain. And when Audrey is placed in terrible danger, he’s determined to save her.
The Echo Boy is a powerful story about love, loss and what makes us truly human.
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by book blogger Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Have you heard of Echo Boy? Is it on your TBR list? What are you waiting on this week?
