Waiting on Wednesday {27}: The 100

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

Today I'm featuring The 100 by Kass Morgan.
Synopsis from Goodreads:  In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland...before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust-and even love-again.
Why I'm Waiting: A toxic Earth, spaceships, a struggle to survive. Definitely right up my alley. Plus, I hear they are already developing a pilot for TV and I always like to read the book before I watch the television show.
The 100 will be released by Little Brown BFYR on September 3rd, 2013!
