Acid
by Emma Pass 

Goodreads synopsis:
2113. In Jenna Strong’s world, ACID – the most brutal, controlling police force in history – rule supreme. No throwaway comment or muttered dissent goes unnoticed – or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a bloody crime she struggles to remember.

The only female inmate in a violent high-security prison, Jenna has learned to survive by any means necessary. And when a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID – and to uncover the truth about what really happened on that dark night two years ago.

I only heard about Acid a couple of days ago, but already I'm really excited about it. I've seen quite a few bloggers are reading it/talking about it, and it seems to be spreading around pretty quickly.
This sounds like a great, fast-paced edge of your seat thriller, mixed with a bit mystery and maybe even science fiction. The dystopian element to the book also seems like it might give it quite a dark atmosphere.
I just love the sound of this and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I like the sound of this and the dystopian element is just the cherry on the pie. Thanks for bringing this book into the spotlight as I hadn't heard of it before.

The cover and the synopsis both make ACID sound thrilling and dark. The dystopian element is good too!
