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 Scourge
by Jennifer A. Nielsen

hitting shelves August 30th, 2016
from Scholastic
As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor's wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge -- and quarantine colony -- for the ill. The Scourge's victims, Ani now among them, can only expect to live out short, painful lives there. However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn't know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She's been caught in a devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover just what is actually going on. 

But will she and Weevil survive long enough to do so? 

The Scourge is an explosively thrilling tale of adventure and intrigue, courage and heart from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen.

My thoughts:  The Coverrrrr ♥.  Okay, now that's out of the way. :D  I actually haven't read this author before, but I hear nothing but great things. I think this is MG (?) but I can't find anything that specifically says that, or the character's age. But it sounds like a fantastic adventure whichever it is!!  Also, it's a standalone. And sometimes I just love those. :)

What are you waiting on this week?
