Along with the release this week:

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Wherever You Go by Heather Davis
The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Lightbringer by K.D. McEntire
Death Watch by Ari Berk
Dancer Girl by Carol M Tanzman

Meanwhile The Pledge has been reviewed by KIRKUS, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, VOYA and BOOKLIST.
Voya is calling The Pledge “fast-paced and engrossing”
Booklist says “Derting (Desires of the Dead, 2011) gives texture to Charlie’s future society, hinting at a not-so distant past when cities had names and people wanted democracy but became corrupt and turned to an all powerful Queen. Danger, dread, mystery, and romance are a potent combination for those that enjoy their dystopian-light fiction action packed.”
Hearing good reviews about this book makes me want to read this one. Make sure to get your copy of  The Pledge by Kimberly Derting.

“The writer, out with her first and highly-anticipated young adult novel Legend, discusses her fascination with child prodigies and the intrigue of writing dystopian stories.

Marie Lu is that rare debut novelist whose book is slated for a film adaptation before its publication. The rights to her young-adult futuristic thriller, Legend, have been secured by CBS Films and will be developed and produced by the team behind the Twilight franchise. Lu was born near Shanghai, China and moved to the U.S. from Beijing at age 5, settling in Texas until she started college at the University of Southern California. She’s also founder of the business brand Fuzz Academy, aimed at teaching kids and tweens about living environmentally.”
