Riding Backward by Tracy Bilen
Release Date: Summer 2012

From Goodreads.com
Sixteen-year-old Sara and her mom are running away from home. But not until tomorrow. Tonight there's one last dinner with Dad, who still asks why her dead brother is late for dinner.

Sara's mom says to meet her at the Dairy Dream. Then she never shows up. And everything in the suitcase Sara had packed has been put away. Neatly. Like her dad would do.

Where is Sara's mom? Will Sara find her before it's too late?

The whole idea of this book gets me chomping at the bit to read it. I love mysteries and this one looks like it will be a sort of dangerous, claustrophobic story which is something I really like in mysteries. If it also goes into social awareness topics too I will be in heaven.

The Selection by Kiera Cass
Release Date: Summer 2012

From KieraCass.com
A dystopian romance pitched as "The Hunger Games" meets "The Bachelor", The Selection follows 17-year-old America Singer, one of the eligible women selected to compete to become the next queen, who finds herself falling in love despite only wanting to break her family out of the lower castes and leaving her boyfriend at home.

I can't wait to see the cover for this one. You know that I love The HUnger Games so anything that promises to be similar is definitely on my TBR list. I know that I shouldn't want something that sounds derivative because it's just not cool but so what? I like what I like and The Hunger Games was like candy. Who doesn't want more candy? :D
