Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
Author: Melissa Grey
Release Date: September 3, 2019
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Societies thrive on order, and the Rating System is the ultimate symbol of organized social mobility.
The higher it soars, the more valued you are. The lower it plummets, the harder you must work to improve yourself. For the students at the prestigious Maplethorpe Academy, every single thing they do is reflected in their ratings, updated daily and available for all to see.
But when an act of vandalism sullies the front doors of the school, it sets off a chain reaction that will shake the lives of six special students — and the world beyond.
Why I’m Excited:
This sounds like a mix of Brave New World and that Black Mirror episode starring Bryce Dallas Howard. I don’t read a lot of dystopian-type stories (the market just got so saturated with not-great stories after The Hunger Games), but this sounds really interesting. Also, I’m loving this cover. It’s eye-catching. I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for this one.
What upcoming release are you excited for this week?
