"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you're eagerly anticipating.


The Glimpse by Claire Merle
Publication Date: June 7th, 2012

Once you've seen into the future, can you change your destiny?

"In a near future, society is segregated according to whether people are genetically disposed to mental illness. 17-year-old Ana has been living the privileged life of a Pure due to an error in her DNA test. When the authorities find out, she faces banishment from her safe Community, a fate only thwarted by the fact that she has already been promised to Pure-boy Jasper Taurell.

Jasper is from a rich and influential family and despite Ana’s condition, wants to be with her. The authorities grant Ana a tentative reprieve. If she is joined to Jasper before her 18th birthday, she may stay in the Community until her illness manifests. But if Jasper changes his mind, she will be cast out among the Crazies. As Ana’s joining ceremony and her birthday loom closer, she dares to hope she will be saved from the horror of the City and live a ‘normal’ life. But then Jasper disappears.

Led to believe Jasper has been taken by a strange sect the authorities will not intefere with, Ana sneaks out of her well-guarded Community to find him herself. Her search takes her through the underbelly of society and into the pits of the human soul. And as she delves deeper into the mystery of Jasper's abduction she uncovers some devastating truths that destroy everything she has grown up to believe, but she also learns to love as she has never loved before." - Goodreads summary

  2. Reading the synopsis, this book sounds more exciting and dystopian than the cover would suggest! The cover looks like a romance novel! It's pretty but I'm not sure the plot synopsis and cover go together!

  3. I've been waiting for this one forever, too! It sounds so good, I can't wait to find out what's happening with Jasper and what this world is like that selects out the genetic predisposed. I received this on NetGalley a few weeks ago and am having the hardest time resisting bumping it to the top of my list haha. Great pick!
