Waiting on Wednesday--Freakling, by Lana Krumwiede

Perhaps, like me, you have a twelve-year old boy kicking around the house who is a picky reader of frustrating randomness, and you are always looking for books that might, just possibly, appeal (and books with gears on the cover seem especially hopeful). Perhaps, like me, you like stories in which children are exiled to rural communities for fantastical/science fictional reasons. Perhaps (yes, like me again), you enjoy dystopias, but are tired of the obligatory romance element.

If you answered yes to the above, I am confident that you, like me (last time I'm saying that) will look forward to Freakling, by

  1. What 12-year old is NOT a "picky reader of frustrating randomness"? I compiled a two page list of dystopian novels, and I only have 10 left in the entire library. Certainly looking into this one!

    1. Me! I was not picky. I read what was put in front of me, and said please and thank you very nicely.

  2. Hmm. I was a little burned out on dystopians, but the age of the character and the premise really intrigue me. I'll add this one to my wish list.

  6. Wow is right! Thanks, everyone, for your enthusiasm about Freaklng. This is my first novel, and it has been amazing to see its journey from a file on my computer to a book on the shelf. Picky 12-year-old readers? I was one. I live with one. I understand!

    The first three chapters are available now as a free download on Nook or Kindle, if anyone wants a sneak peek.
