I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Waiting on Wednesday: The Lost Code


 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

THE LOST CODE BY KEVIN EMERSON
The Atlanteans Book 1

Young Adult, Science Fiction & Fantasy
Publisher: HarperCollins Children’s Books 
May 22nd 2012

From Goodread:

            WHAT IS OLDEST WILL BE NEW, WHAT IS LOST SHALL BE FOUND.

The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth’s history.

No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.

Now it is Owen’s turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry…and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary.

  3. Great pick! I have this book waiting for me at home :) Unfortunately I've read some really mixed reviews about it, which totally disappoints me. I've been looking forward to this one for a while now so it sucks that a lot of people aren't loving it. We need more Atlantis books in the world!

    Well I'll still be reading it soon :) I hope we both enjoy it!
