Salt & Stone 
by Victoria Scott

This is the second book in the Fire & Flood series. If you haven't read the first book, but intend to, don't read this synopsis, as it will contain spoilers.

What would you do to save someone you love?

In FIRE & FLOOD, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.
So, I finished reading Fire & Flood the other day (still need to get round to that review! It's coming... I swear!), and despite having mixed feelings about it most of the way through, once I got to the final 50 pages, I was so hooked that I knew I would be adding the next book to my wishlist.
I don't want to say too much here (for fear of spoilers and because I want to save it for my review), but the ending was definitely worth it!

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 enjoy this specific book, thank you a whole lot intended for chatting up your brain concerning this. My partner and i has been going to utilize it as one example of important literacy mainly because it in fact allows youthful college students to formulate idea of just what they understand.
