Waiting on Wednesday #120: Revolutionary

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Revolutionary by Krista McGee
Thomas Nelson-July 15, 2014

About the Book
Back in the hands of the State after months aboveground, Thalli, Berk, Alex, and Kristie find themselves caught in a horrible game of power . . . with consequences reaching farther than they ever imagined.
After months in New Hope and Athens, Thalli had almost forgotten what living in the State was like. Programmed to be without emotions or curiosity, she was always an anomaly there. Too emotional. Too curious. Citizens of the State should behave exactly the way the Scientists designed them to behave: working in their assigned fields, maintaining productivity.
Thalli’s entire genetically engineered generation has been eradicated by a scientocracy that believes human life is expendable. Now, a pawn in a mad game of manipulation, held hostage and tortured in the name of the State, Thalli can barely summon the strength to hope that the future of humanity could be any better.
She clings to her new faith in the Designer. But when Thalli discovers that even the surviving aboveground villages are in danger of State domination, her fragile faith begins to crumble.
As Thalli, Berk, and Alex make plans to overthrow the evil Dr. Loudin, a chilling secret explains why they have been left alive at all . . . a personal secret that will haunt Thalli forever. And as she struggles with this new truth, she also struggles with decisions of the heart.

Can the State’s expansion be stopped? Or will humanity—above and below the surface—be irreparably damaged?  Thalli is faced with a purpose both overwhelming and undeniable: to assume the role of a Revolutionary.

Why I Want to Read It
I have loved all of Krista McGee's books, especially the first two in this series and I can't wait to see how it all ends!
