It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA from the top of my TBR list!
Releases 27 September 2016 from Month9Books
Eighteen-year-old Blanca has lived a sheltered life. Her entire childhood has been spent at Tabula Rasa School, where she’s been protected from the Internet. Blanca has never been online and doesn’t even know how to text. Her lack of a virtual footprint makes her extremely valuable, and upon graduation, Blanca and those like her are sold to the highest bidders.
Blanca is purchased by Cal McNeal, who uses her to achieve personal gain. But the McNeals are soon horrified by just how obedient and non-defiant Blanca is. All those mind-numbing years locked away from society have made her mind almost impenetrable.
By the time Blanca is ready to think for herself, she is trapped. Her only chance of escape is to go online.

I think this is an absolutely fascinating, original premise for a dystopian novel, and I'm excited to see how it goes. Month9Books is a small/indie publisher that has been dealing with some drama lately, so I hope this book makes it through and gets published!
Thanks for reading, and I'll see you Saturday for some personal experiences with sexual harassment.
