Waiting on Wednesday #97: Sound

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...


Sound by Alexandra Duncan


Title: Sound (Salvage #2)
Author: Alexandra Duncan

Release date: September 22nd 2015
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction

Sound is the stand-alone companion to Alexandra Duncan’s acclaimed novel Salvage, a debut that internationally bestselling author Stephanie Perkins called “kick-ass, brilliant, feminist science fiction.” For fans of Beth Revis, Firefly, and Battlestar Galactica.

As a child, Ava’s adopted sister Miyole watched her mother take to the stars, piloting her own ship from Earth to space making deliveries. Now a teen herself, Miyole is finally living her dream as a research assistant on her very first space voyage. If she plays her cards right, she could even be given permission to conduct her own research and experiments in her own habitat lab on the flight home. But when her ship saves a rover that has been viciously attacked by looters and kidnappers, Miyole—along with a rescued rover girl named Cassia—embarks on a mission to rescue Cassia’s abducted brother, and that changes the course of Miyole’s life forever.

I just recently found out that Salvage is getting a companion novel. I'm definitely happy with the news, because I liked the premise of Salvage and the world that Alexandra Duncan has created. I'll need a re-read to get up to speed with characters and plot, but from this synopsis I'm already excited.
