Waiting on Wednesday (May 25, 2011)

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 spineThis 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.

  6. I'm not officially a reviewer, but I got an advance readers copy and this book is EPIC! If you think it’s hard being a teenager, try doing it in a small Midwestern town where people aren’t always what they seem and you’re in danger of slipping into an alternate reality at any moment. This is like FRINGE for teens!
