Lindsay is so cool that she deserves cheerleaders.

Title: The Murder Complex (The Murder Complex #1)
Author: Lindsay Cummings
Shelves: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Thriller
Publication Date: June 10th, 2014
Publisher: Greenwillow


Summary from Goodreads: An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.

Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.

The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn’t know it—one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?

Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.

WoW with Lindsay Cummings

I'm SO excited for Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige.
Growing up, I used to watch The Wizard of Oz probably on a weekly basis. I had the red slippers, the dress, the braids, the basket with a stuffed Toto. I loved the crazy world of Oz, and I always used to say "Bust my buttons!" So lame.

I'm super excited about this dark twist on a story I've loved since I was little…I think it's going to be a hit! :)
