"Waiting on" Wednesday #5

Welcome to "Waiting on" Wednesday, a weekly meme held by Breaking the Spine. This meme is held to showcase upcoming releases that we can't wait to get our hands on. This week I chose a book that sounds so unique and intriguing, I have to get a copy ASAP.

Cold Fury by T.M. Goeglein
Release date: July 24, 2012
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile

Sara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance--until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit (aka the mob).
Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family. It's a quest that takes her through concealed doors and forgotten speakeasies--a city hiding in plain sight. Though armed with a .45 and 96K in cash, an old tattered notebook might be her best defense--hidden in its pages the secret to "ultimate power." It's why she's being pursued, why her family was taken, and could be the key to saving all of their lives.
Action packed, with fresh, cinematic writing, Cold Fury is a riveting and imaginative adventure readers will devour.

Why I Want This Book:
1.) Uh, can you say unique? How many Young Adult books have been published in the past 5 years that have been about someone against an underground Chicago mob? Not many, if I recall.
2.) Not only is this book about a mob, it's about a girl going against a mob to save her family. I'm hoping she's one of those inspirational and strong female protagonists, because without that, I think the book would be a waste of an incredible plot.
3.) It's all about adventure, and I've been craving a good adventure story without the romance tied in.
4.) I love Chicago. It's a beautiful and intimidating city, and I'd love to read a book all about it.

That's about it, folks. If you wanna learn more, check this book out on Amazon or Goodreads

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me comments and links! (:

  1. Hmm, interesting, the cover makes me think of either The Bourne Identity, or even kind of The Terminator. I can think of a lot of girls who would enjoy this that aren't into the paranormal types of books. Great pick! Check out my WoW here:

    Here's my Waiting on Wednesday. And I agree with Lisa, my first though was the Bourne Series when I saw the cover. I think I'll definitely look more into it to see if I'll read it. It's coming out very soon.
