Waiting on Wednesday 4/7/10

NOMANSLAND by Lesley Hauge

Sometime in the future, after devastating wars and fires, a lonely, windswept island in the north is populated solely by women. Among these women is a group of teenaged Trackers—expert equestrians and archers—whose job is to protect their shores from the enemy. The enemy, they’ve been told, is men.

When these girls come upon a partially buried home from the distant past, they are fascinated by the strange objects—high-heeled shoes, teen magazines, make-up—found there. What are they to make of these mysterious things, which introduce a world they have never known? And what does it mean for their strict society where friendship is forbidden and rules must be obeyed—at all costs?

A beautiful cover, an interesting plot idea. That's enough to get me hooked! Doesn't sound like all of the other post-apocalyptic stuff out there right now, so this one will definitely be worth reading.

Release date: June 22, 2010
