Waiting on Wednesday (#22)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.  Here's mine for this week:

Author: Emma Pass
Publisher: Random House Children's Books
Released: 25th April 2013

ACID - the most brutal police force in history.
They rule with an iron fist.
They see everything. They know everything.
They locked me away for life.

My crime?
They say I murdered my parents.
I was fifteen years old.

My name is Jenna Strong.

 I think it's safe to say this book has my attention.

The synopsis is really short but at the same time, it tells you just enough.  Not to mention the fact that its short length makes it much snappier.  The claim of murder and being locked away reminds me of Shatter Me, but I get the distinct feeling that that is where the similarities end.  The title is to the point, and I have to say, Jenna looks all kinds of badass there.

So.  Is April here yet? *looks expectantly*

Link me up, guys!  Let me know what you're all waiting on this week. :)
