Looking for a book to read? I’ve got an extra advanced copy (it’ll be published in March) of Lauren DeStefano’s Wither in the workroom. Swing by and snag it if you’re interested — and don’t worry about the due date — it’s yours to keep!

The publisher’s description is:

     In the not-too-distant future, because of genetic engineering, every human is a ticking time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. To keep the population from dying out, girls are kidnapped and sold into polygamous marriages.

     When sixteen-year-old Rhine is taken, she enters a world of wealth and privilege that both entices and terrifies her. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to escape before it is too late.
