hosted by Breaking the Spine, lets us book hoarding bloggers highlight a book we're excited for each week. This week I'm waiting on Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch.
GoodReads Description: On one side of the Rift is a technological paradise without famine or want. On the other side is a mystery.
Sixteen-year-old Glenn Morgan has lived next to the Rift her entire life and has no idea of what might be on the other side of it. Glenn's only friend, Kevin, insists the fence holds back a world of monsters and witchcraft, but magic isn't for Glenn. She has enough problems with reality: Glenn's mother disappeared when she was six, and soon after, she lost her scientist father to his all-consuming work on the mysterious Project. Glenn buries herself in her studies and dreams about the day she can escape. But when her father's work leads to his arrest, he gives Glenn a simple metal bracelet that will send Glenn and Kevin on the run---with only one place to go.
With MAGISTERIUM, Jeff Hirsch brings us the story of a complex, captivating world that will leave readers breathless until the very last page.
Why I'm Excited: This just sounds awesome. I got a signed arc of this at BEA and it was one of my top six books to look for at BEA.
Magisterium comes out October 1, 2012 from Scholastic Press.
