Waiting on Wednesday (35)

This week, I'm waiting on...

172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad. Here's what Goodreads has to say: Three teenagers are going on the trip of a lifetime. Only one is coming back. It's been more than forty years since NASA sent the first men to the moon, and to grab some much-needed funding and attention, they decide to launch an historic international lottery in which three lucky teenagers can win a week-long trip to moon base DARLAH 2 - a place that no one but top government officials even knew existed until now.

The three winners, Antoine, Midori, and Mia, come from all over the world. But just before the scheduled launch, the teenagers each experience strange, inexplicable events. Little do they know that there was a reason NASA never sent anyone back there until now - a sinister reason. But the countdown has already begun...

How AWESOME does that sound? 172 Hours on the Moon releases in April 2012.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Holy ***! The cover freaks me out, seriously. But the story sounds a-freaking-mazing. Great pick!

Whoa, creepy! Sounds like a very cool combo of scifi and thriller. We've read another YA that sort of purported to do that, but it was disappointing. Hopefully this one is as awesome as it looks and sounds!
