"Waiting on" Wednesday (3): Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld

"Waiting on" Wednesday is posted every other week to spotlight my most anticipated books

Title: Zeroes (Zeroes #1)
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Release Date: September 29, 2015

Summary

Ethan, aka "Scam," has a way with words. When he opens his mouth, whatever he wants you to hear comes out. But Ethan isn't just a smooth talker. He has a unique ability to say things he doesn't consciously even know. Sometimes the voice helps, but sometimes it hurts - like now, when the voice has lied and has landed Ethan in a massive mess. So now Ethan needs help. And he needs to go to the last people who would ever want to help him - his former group of friends, the self-named "zeros" who also all possess similarly double-edged abilities, and who are all angry at Ethan for their own respective reasons. Brought back together by Scam's latest mischief, they find themselves entangled in an epic, whirlwind adventure packed with as much interpersonal drama as mind-bending action (Summary from Goodreads).

Why I'm So Excited

Back when I was around 13 years old I read Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series and I loved it!  They actually made me interested in the dystopian genre and so right after those books I read The Hunger Games.  I'm not much of a fan of the dystopian YA books I've read in the last couple years (I actually stay away from them  now if I can since reading the Divergent trilogy), but since I really enjoyed Uglies I'm looking forward to reading this other series by Scott Westerfeld.
