Waiting for Wednesday – July 17

New WoW

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine , that spotlights book releases that we can’t wait for. This is the one I’m waiting for!

“A smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story.” —DEAN KOONTZ

You can’t get them out of your head. . . .

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie.
Callie’s only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie’s head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter.
Callie soon discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations’ plans are more evil than she could ever have imagined. . . .

This edition includes Portrait of a Spore, a never-before-published short story that takes place in the world of STARTERS!
