Waiting on Wednesday


Scored by Lauren McLaughlin
October 25th 2011 by Random House

From the Publisher:
Set in the future when teenagers are monitored via camera and their recorded actions and confessions plugged into a computer program that determines their ability to succeed. All kids given a "score" that determines their future potential. This score has the ability to get kids into colleges, grant scholarships, or destroy all hope for the above.Scored's reluctant heroine is Imani, a girl whose high score is brought down when her best friend's score plummets. Where do you draw the line between doing what feels morally right and what can mean your future? Friendship, romance, loyalty, family, human connection and human value: all are questioned in this fresh and compelling dystopian novel set in the scarily forseeable future.

I'm all up for a sci-fi dystopian! Not sure how I feel about the cover...if it would change, I wouldn't cry about it. This one doesn't do a whole lot for me, but the premise sounds like something I would love.
