Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

The Mad Scientist's Daughter
by Cassandra Rose Clarke

hitting shelves January 29th, 2012 from Angry Robot

Not much of a description on Goodreads, but I did spy this one on the author's website:

Set in a collapsing future America, the novel tells of Cat. When she is a young girl, her father brings an experimental android to their isolated home to serve as her tutor. Finn stays with her, becoming her constant companion and friend as she grows to adulthood. But then they take the relationship much further than anyone intended – which ultimately threatens to force them apart forever.

My thoughts: This sounds amazing! This little smidge of a summary , this gorgeous cover, and that tagline---they all have me hooked!
