Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.
However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.
Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.

Another new book :D I think this one sounds amazing. What drew me to it was the cover. The cover is stunning. And I do adore covers like this one ;) And yeah. The summary is amazing, to be honest. I do love Dystopia books. And The Ward sounds so good. Really hoping I will like it; that the writing will be good :) I hope so. And I'm hoping the romance will be amazing :D Hih.
