Teaser Tuesday (46): The Ward by Jordana Frankel

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from The Ward by Jordana Frankel. I'm only halfway through this book, but it's really good. I've read a few 'meh' reviews for it so far, but I'm really enjoying it. I love the concept and the main character is really fun to read about. She's so snarky! This is one of those books that I saw the cover and just knew I needed to read it. I will definitely be purchasing a hardcover of this one, just so I can look at that gorgeous cover up close!

I don't want to sound like I don't care—Benny's in a rough spot—but my mind is stuck on whether I get to race tonight. I keep quiet, though. Can't stop my mind from being rude, but I can stop my mouth.

{The Ward, Prologue}

To think—people used to fill toilet bowls with fresh. Pissing into a pot you can drink out of. Unbelievable.

{The Ward, Chapter 1}

Synopsis of The Ward:
Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.

However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.

Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.
