Waiting on Wednesday #84: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is:

by Gena Showalter
Publication Date: February 23, 2016



Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.

There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.

In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision… 
When I first saw this one, I really thought it was part of an existing series. The tagline, "An Everlife Novel," was a little misleading! But no, this is a new book in a new series and I'm pretty super excited about it!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.
