"Waiting on" Wednesday [22]

The Young World by Chris Weitz

Publication Date: July 29, 2014
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
After a mysterious Sickness wipes out the rest of the population, the young survivors assemble into tightly run tribes. Jefferson, the reluctant leader of the Washington Square tribe, and Donna, the girl he's secretly in love with, have carved out a precarious existence among the chaos. But when another tribe member discovers a clue that may hold the cure to the Sickness, five teens set out on a life-altering road trip to save humankind.

The tribe exchanges gunfire with enemy gangs, escapes cults and militias, braves the wilds of the subway and Central Park...and discovers truths they could never have imagined.

I love books that have a group of people interacting with each other during a journey. It's always more fun to see how group dynamics develop instead of just between two people. I'm excited to see how Weitz portrays New York City in this post-apocolyptic world he has dreamed up in The Young World.
