Wishful Wednesday featuring The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and Parajunkee.

Wishful Wednesday is my own little version of "Waiting On Wednesday". Every two weeks or so, I'll pick a topic or genre and list a few upcoming books (or book) that I'm anticipating the release for. This week, that book is going to be The Jewel by Amy Ewing. I have been so excited for this book, since I read the amazing synopsis for it on Goodreads. I'm not too crazy with the idea of it being compared to The Selection, but if it's anything like The Handmaid's Tale, holy crap whoa - I am so there! Ahh, it just look like it's going to be so good. The synopsis alone, just gives me chills. Oh my gosh, look at that cover. JUST LOOK AT IT. I can't...I just can't. Gah! So pretty.

Expected Publication: September 2, 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen
Age Demographic: YA Histoical Fantasy
Pages: 258

The Selection meets The Handmaid's Tale in this darkly riveting debut filled with twists and turns, where all that glitters may not be gold.

The Jewel means wealth, the Jewel means beauty—but for Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Born and raised in the Marsh, Violet finds herself living in the Jewel as a servant at the estate of the Duchess of the Lake. Addressed only by her number—#197—Violet is quickly thrown into the royal way of life. But behind its opulent and glittering facade, the Jewel hides its cruel and brutal truth, filled with violence, manipulation, and death.

Violet must accept the ugly realities of her life . . . all while trying to stay alive. But before she can accept her fate, Violet meets a handsome boy who is also under the Duchess's control, and a forbidden love erupts. But their illicit affair has consequences, which will cost them both more than they bargained for. And toeing the line between being calculating and rebellious, Violet must decide what, and who, she is willing to risk for her own freedom.
