Waiting on Wednesday: Fire & Flood (#11)

Author: Victoria Scott
Release Date: February 25th, 2014
Pages: 320
Publisher: Scolastic Press

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

A modern day thrill ride, where a teen girl and her animal companion must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life—and her own.

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?

The cover for this novel looks pretty awesome. And the synopsis is pretty cool as well. To me, it sounds like it's going to be an amazing read.

What drew me to this book (other than the cover) was just my curiosity: what's the Cure? Why is it in the jungle? Does the Cure cure anything and/or everything? Do her parents care about what she feels? Is she going to save her brother?

So many questions, but unfortunately, I'll have to wait till February for my answers!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
