Is it Wednesday already? Yep, it is and that means it's time to post what book titles we're waiting to read. Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Jill at Breaking the spine. This week's pick is Dark Territory (The Tracks, Book #1), a YA novel by J. Gabriel Gates and Charlene Keel.
Here is the summary (from Goodreads): In the quaint town of Middleburg, an abandoned train yard and old railroad tracks form the dividing line between two rival gangs—the posh, preppie Toppers and the working-class Flatliners. When Raphael, the leader of the Flatliners, falls in love with Aimee, a Topper girl, the rival gangs prepare to do battle . . . but not with guns and knives. Their martial arts training dictates a strict code of honor, which all of the gang members adhere to. The only hope for peace between the rival gangs lies within the giant X formed where the railroad tracks cross. The awesome power contained in the X sends the Flatliners and the Toppers on a mystical quest to fight against malevolent forces that threaten the existence of Middleburg—and maybe the world.
Gangs, martial arts, super powers and a mystical quest. Sounds like a fabulous summer read. And the cover is pretty sweet.
Dark Territory (The Tracks, Book #1), 480 pages, will be published by HCI Teens on July 1.
