Waiting On Wednesday: Some Karen Healey Love

On what should have been the best day of sixteen-year-old Tegan's life, she dies—and wakes up a hundred years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened. Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryonically frozen and successfully revived, which makes her an instant celebrity—even though all she wants to do is try to rebuild some semblance of a normal life. But the future isn't all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better future?

Now, I don't typically do Waiting on Wednesday, because I have a memory like a sieve, and for extemporaneous things, I honestly cannot keep track of all of the books that I love. Various genres, various series and for varying ages - unless I'm going to employ a secretary or actually spend time on a spread sheet, it's just too hard to keep track. Tor.com usually does it for me, at least for SFF - from providing novel excerpts to the much beloved Fiction Affliction roundups, I'm mostly up to date. Which is a great thing, because one of my faaave, fave, favorite Kiwi authors, Karen Healey, is getting my Cybils list for next year started early. Coming in March, a YA cryonics novel!!

Thankfully, Tor.com provides an excerpt.

Are you waiting on Wednesday, too? Here's hoping you have more patience than I do - or forget as easily as I do...


P.S. - if you need a good laugh, check out Willems Shakespeare - no, really, Mo Willems & Shakespeare. Bottom Shelf Books strikes again... ☺

Ooh, I'm excited now, too! I really like Karen Healey. Thanks for the tip, although my mind is awfully sieve-like these days...
