Waiting on Wednesday #29: In the After

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
In the After by Demitria Lunetta.

Expected Publication: June 25, 2013.
by HarperTeen.

Goodreads Summary:
They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you've ever seen.
And They won't stop chasing you...until you are dead.

Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to escape—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.

After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.

Rebellious, courageous, and tender, this unforgettable duo will have you on the edge of your seat as you tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.

Why I'm Excited:
Confession: I am not over the whole post-apocalyptic trend. Not at all. So this one sounds so cool to me. And I was lucky enough to win a copy from a round of trivia at my local book club, so I'm very excited to dive in!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Congrats on winning a copy! This does look pretty cool...even though I am kinda over the whole post-apocalyptic trend. The cover is so creepy. I'll definitely pick this one up. Great pick!
