Nil by Lynne Matson
Expected publication: March 4th 2014 by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
This new Cover is so insanely awesome!!!
On the mysterious island of Nil, the rules are set. You have exactly 365 days to escape—or you die.
Seventeen-year-old Charley doesn’t know the rules. She doesn’t even know where she is. The last thing she remembers is blacking out, and when she wakes up, she’s naked in an empty rock field.
Lost and alone, Charley finds no sign of other people until she meets Thad, the gorgeous leader of a clan of teenage refugees. Soon Charley learns that leaving the island is harder than she thought . . . and so is falling in love. With Thad’s time running out, Charley realizes that she has to find a way to beat the clock, and quickly.
Right now, it’s hard to label Nil correctly, but the best way to describe it would be a Young Adult Survival Mystery with a SciFi twist and a “LOST” feeling. Wooth, thats a handful 🙂
I’m reading this right now and I can tell you guys, this is a book which definitely belongs to your wish lists! And, I LOVE the new cover. The old one was kind of boring and this new one looks amazing, and it makes soo much sense once you got to know “Nil”.
So, now I’m excited to see your picks for today!!
