Waiting on Wednesday – The Girl with All the Gifts
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
This book sounds wonderfully creepy. So looking forward to it, I mean, a smart little girl held in a cell and strapped down to a wheelchair at gunpoint? I just HAVE to know what that is about!
The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey
Expected Publication: June 10, 2014 by Orbit
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her “our little genius.”
Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite, but they don’t laugh.
Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children’s cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she’ll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn’t know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.
THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is a sensational thriller, perfect for fans of Stephen King, Justin Cronin and Neil Gaiman.
