Waiting on Wednesday: After the End by Amy Plum

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
After the End by Amy Plum.
Publication Date: May 6th 2014.

After the End – Harper Children’s

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They’ve survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.
At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.
When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.
Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she’s trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.
Synopsis from goodreads.com

It’s finally got a cover! And look at that beauty. (Yeah, after involuntarily learning that beauty is not in the eye of the beholder but rather in some ways genetically pre-programmed ... or so some scientists believe ... I’m not sure if I’ll be odd for calling this beautiful or if others will agree because of our genetic mark-up.) But I digress. I think the cover is stunning and compellingly different from the majority of designs you see out there. I’ve been super excited about this book ever since Amy started talking about it. I know that the writing will at least be just as amazing as with the Revenants and I can’t wait to see her take on a supposedly post-apocalyptic scenario. Or surprisingly not-so-post-apocalyptic but still totally messed up. All very mysterious and exciting.

Any thoughts on the beauty subject? If you want, check out the TED talk that inspired that tangent. But definitely let us know about your most anticipated book of the week as we’d most assuredly want to know about those.
