I want to read that...


Empty by Suzanne Weyn
From Goodreads:
It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be.

Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.

Teens like Nicki, Tom, and Leila may find what they need to survive. But their lives are never going to be the same again.


I'm really loving the sound of this! It's published October 1st 2010 by Scholastic Press (US). Here's hoping for a UK release too:)

It does sound very, very good. I'm with you on hoping for a UK release - I'm guessing it will be in 2011. Fingers crossed!

I cannot wait to get my hands on this book! I heart me some dystopian fiction. And this scenario seems so possible it's scary!

I'm excited about this one too. Seriously, I just have to hear the word 'dystopia' and I'm sold, but this sounds especially interesting. Fab pick.
