One of my most eagerly anticipated books of 2012 is Struck by author Jennifer Bosworth. The YA novel tells the story of Mia Price, a “lightning addict” who’s been struck by the weather-related electric discharges so many times, she’s covered in veiny red “lightning scars.” However, when a massive earthquake decimates her hometown of Los Angeles, Mia finds herself in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and torn between two factions, both of which want her to harness her powers for their own ends.
But doing so could mean bringing about the destruction of the entire planet.
Struck‘s storyline intrigued me from the get-go, and the dope trailer above only solidifies my growing fanaticism. I can’t wait for its May 8 release! Check out Jennifer’s Facebook page and be sure to add Struck to your Good Reads bookshelves.
