Waiting On Wednesday #18

Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

I mentioned my choice for this week's WoW in my Top 10 post yesterday, it sounds so different to anything I've read recently I just had to post it!

Zenn Scarlett - Christian Schoon
ISBN -  9781908844552
Publisher - Strange Chemistry
Exp. pub. date - May 7 2013

'Zenn Scarlett is a bright, determined, occasionally a-little-too-smart-for-her-own-good 17-year-old girl training hard to become an exoveterinarian. That means she’s specializing in the treatment of exotic alien life forms, mostly large and generally dangerous. Her novice year of training at the Ciscan Cloister Exovet Clinic on Mars will find her working with alien patients from whalehounds the size of a hay barn to a baby Kiran Sunkiller, a colossal floating creature that will grow up to carry a whole sky-city on its back.

But after a series of inexplicable animal escapes from the school and other near-disasters, the Cloister is in real danger of being shut down by a group of alien-hating officials. If that happens, Zenn knows only too well the grim fate awaiting the creatures she loves.

Now, she must unravel the baffling events plaguing her school, before someone is hurt or killed, before everything she cares about is ripped away from her and her family forever. To solve this mystery – and live to tell about it – Zenn will have to put her new exovet skills to work in ways she never imagined, and in the process learn just how powerful compassion and empathy can be.'
- Goodreads


How amazing does that sound? And so completely different to anything I've read recently and it's been a while since I read anything in the SF genre, YA or not. You can find the lovely Christian Schoon on Twitter here.

What's your WoW this week?
