Seed loves you. Seed will never let you go.

Fifteen-year-old Pearl has lived her whole life protected within the small community at Seed, where they worship Nature and idolise their leader, Papa S. When some outsiders arrive, everything changes. Pearl experiences feelings that she never knew existed and begins to realise that there is darkness at the heart of Seed. A darkness from which she must escape, before it's too late.
I stumbled on this last week when I was browsing through my Goodreads feed. Someone had added it to their wishlist, and after reading the synopsis, I had to follow suit!
I have recently gone off dystopian fiction a little ... mostly because if it's not actually post-apocalyptic, it feels like it's almost there, and I've been wanting to read something a little more cheerful of late. However, I did read and love the entire Giver Quartet at the end of last year, and that had a very nice feeling to it – this reminds me of it, in the way that I imagine it might feel.
Fingers crossed it's as good as I think it's going to be. It's released in April by Electric Monkey in the UK, so I will definitely be looking out for it then!

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 :)
