This week's WoW selection is...

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads
Title:  Outpost

Series:  2nd book in the Razorland series
Publisher:  Feiwel & Friends, an imprint of Macmillan
Publication Date:  September 4, 2012

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Now living topside in a community called Salvation, she has a whole new set of problems. Down below, she was considered an adult, and she contributed to the whole. Now, topside, the people of Salvation think she’s a brat in need of training. She hates school, and she doesn’t fit in with the other girls. They’ve spent their lives learning to cook and sew–suitable woman’s work. Deuce only knows how to fight. To make matters worse, Fade keeps her at a distance, and the band of four has broken into fragments.
Stalker presses for a closer relationship, but Deuce sees him as a training partner, and she’s busy trying to find her place in Salvation. She refuses to accept that she’s wrong for being who she is, but tensions rise as she struggles against the status quo. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Once she’s free from school for the year, Deuce pursues a chance to serve in the summer patrols–those responsible for making sure the growers and planters can work the fields without danger of Freak attack. It should have been routine, little fighting, but things have been changing on surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks are smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it will take a girl like Deuce to turn the tide.
Why I'm waiting:  I loved the audiobook for Enclave, the first book in this series.  I can't wait to see what happens now that Duece and Fade are living in the outside world.  And have you seen that creepy cover?!?  Nothing calls to me more than a well-done cover.
So, what are you waiting on this week?  Share in the comments so I can add it to my TBR...if it's not already there!  :P
