Waiting on Wednesday (23): The Summer Prince

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I haven't been around much and it sucks! I feel really bad but this time i really wanted to post something so i went along with this meme, which i really love. I have been out of the loop but i found this on one of the blogs that i follow feature it on her WoW and i had to pick this! Here it is...

The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson
Publisher: Scholastic
Pub date: March 2013


Four hundred years ago, the world ended. And now, on the coast of what was once called Brazil, women rule in the legendary pyramid city of Palmares Três. The city's Queen only cedes her power to a man once every five years -- to a Summer King, whose story will grip the city like a fever.

For June Costa, art is everything. Her brilliant creations -- from murals and holograms to a delicate pattern of lights in her skin -- have impressed (and irritated) her classmates and teachers alike. Her dream is to win the prestigious Queen's Award, and the instant fame and success that come with it. It's a dream she never questions -- until she meets Enki. Enki, the newly-elected Summer King, is the hottest thing in Palmares Três. But when June sees Enki, she sees more than piercing amber eyes and a lethal samba: She sees a fellow artist.

Together, June and Enki will create art that Palmares Três will never forget. They will add fuel to a growing rebellion against the government's strict limits on new tech. And June will fall deeply, tragically in love with Enki.

Because like all Summer Kings before him, Enki is destined to die.

Why i'm waiting:

This sounds so good! I love the cover; It's gorgeous! I love the sound of it and the fact that the world ended ' Four hundred years ago ' it's another plus to read. The only problem is that it's released in 2013 (i've been choosing 2013 books a lot but they are hard to resist. Need to find 2012 books i'm eager for.) I'm loving the sound of the romance but it's heartbreaking to hear this: ' Because like all Summer Kings before him, Enki is destined to die. ' *Holding in the tears*

What are you waiting on?
