Wither ACR by Lauren DeStefano
(Chemical Garden #1)
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Publication date: March 22, 2011
What if you knew exactly when you would die?
Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.
When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.
But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.
I received this ARC from Simon & Schuster back in December (THANK YOU S&S!) and I just recently finished it last week, review soon to come :) *Note- The book itself has been read once by me, but is in GREAT condition. I take excellent care of my books.
And now, I'd like to pass this ARC to one of my blog followers. You all have no idea how thankful I am to all of you who take the time to read and comment my posts. The main reason I started this blog was to express my love for books and travel, and you ALL have been very supporting. With that being said, from the bottom of my heart, I'd like to say, THANK YOU :)
