New Dystopian Novel on the Block


I got this info from Lisa's newsletter, and its pretty kick ass!

THE UNWANTEDS, a dystopian fantasy series, is about a society where strength and intelligence is rewarded, and creativity is outlawed. Every year, the 13-year-olds are sorted into categories. The strong, intelligent Wanteds go to university, and the creative, artistic Unwanteds get sent to their death. The book follows twin boys, Alex and Aaron Stowe, as they await their fate.

THE UNWANTEDS (Book 1) comes out September 6, 2011. Cover reveal coming soon!

I love Lisa's books! They are always so creepy and awesome (Wake series anyone?). Tomorrow Cryer's Cross comes out and guess who is going to the nearest bookstore to get it? Exactly.

    "The strong, intelligent Wanteds go to university, and the creative, artistic Unwanteds get sent to their death."

    Is it bad that this made me giggle? Death to us creative types.

    I'll have to keep an eye out for this one.

  5. This sounds pretty interesting. I haven't read any books from the Wake series but I might pick this one up when it comes out. The title kind of makes me cringe but that's just the grammar/spelling part of me.

  10. At a book signing a few months back Lisa read part of the beginning of the book to us. It sounds awesome and I'm excited now that there is a release date even if it is far away.

  13. On the whole, i like dystopian for the message of necessarry change it conveys, but this one sounds too staight forward, you know? Where's the *gasp*-factor? I think our society already values both the intelligent and the creative pretty equally, just in different fields, so i don't see what the deeper meaning of this could be. Maybe I'll just have to read it to find out, but I hope there's more depth to it than that.

  22. This sounds *extremely* creepy, but good. It makes me wonder, though, isn't creativity a form of intelligence as well? *is perplexed*
