Finally, Eva Nine has gotten what she has always wanted: other humans. When she and her friends are rescued by Hailey, another human, Eva couldn't be happier. Now she has everything she has ever dreamed of. Hailey brings Eva and her friends to the human colony New Attica, where humans of all shapes and sizes live in apparent peace and harmony.
But all is not idyllic in New Attica, and soon Eva Nine and her friends realize that something very bad is going on--and if they don't stop it, it could mean the end of everything and everyone on Orbona -quoted from Goodreads

There are a lot of fabulous MG (middle grade) books coming out over the next few weeks, and I really wish I had the time to list each of the books I'm looking forward to featuring here on the blog, as well as picking up. This is one of the books I'm very excited to get my hands on. I was fortunate to receive an ARC of this at ALA midwinter and I'll be posting my review for this, this next week. If you're a fan of Toni's and a fan of Middle Grade than I recommend adding this one to your lists. 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
