Waiting on Wednesday: The Glass Arrow

The Glass Arrow
Author: Kristen Simmons
Publisher: Tor Teen
Expected Publication: February 10, 2015

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.
In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

My Thoughts: Honestly this book wasn't even on my radar until Jenna Does Books wrote a stellar review for it. Now, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy because it sounds absolutely fabulous!
