Waiting on Wednesday: On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis

Waiting on Wednesday

 A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that people are eagerly anticipating.

My choice for Waiting on Wednesday this week is:

On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis

Publication: May 17th 2016 by Amulet Books, 464 pages

January 29, 2035. That’s the day the comet is scheduled to hit—the big one.

Denise and her mother and sister, Iris, have been assigned to a temporary shelter outside their hometown of Amsterdam to wait out the blast, but Iris is nowhere to be found, and at the rate Denise’s drug-addicted mother is going, they’ll never reach the shelter in time.

A last-minute meeting leads them to something better than a temporary shelter: a generation ship, scheduled to leave Earth behind to colonize new worlds after the comet hits. But everyone on the ship has been chosen because of their usefulness. Denise is autistic and fears that she’ll never be allowed to stay. Can she obtain a spot before the ship takes flight? What about her mother and sister?

When the future of the human race is at stake, whose lives matter most?


  1. This sounds pretty good. And I'm really liking the cover. I hope you get to read, and enjoy, it soon. Thanks for sharing and happy Wednesday! :)

  2. An autistic main character certainly sounds good! Here's hoping it lives up to the promise! Here's mine:

  3. I'm not much into dystopian stories, but the characters and issues in this sounds so interesting. And MAN is that cover gorgeous! :D

  4. Ooh nice! I enjoy a good dystopian, but ones that seem to get so realistic scare the crap out of me! LOL! I was a wreck when I read Doomed by Tracy Deebs some years ago, because I could sooooo see that happening! Hope you enjoy this one once you get to read it!

    Have a GREAT day!
