This one belongs to my wonderful critique partner, Amy Christine Parker. Her novel, Gated, comes out August 27, 2013, and I can tell you, it's one you'll definitely want to read. Here's the description from Amazon.
"Welcome to Mandrodage Meadow, a typical middle-class, close-knit community. The
families here are drawn together by shared values and a commitment to living a
peaceful life in a beautiful, somewhat insular suburban development. But there's
a problem: you're actually not welcome—at all.
The last thing anyone
inside the compound wants is attention from the outside world. For over ten
years, the members have lived happily under the direction of Pioneer, the
charismatic leader who took them away from their sad, damaged lives. So when
Pioneer pinpoints the end of the world and plots a very specific and drastic
course for his cult (they must arm themselves and prepare to move into an
underground silo to save their community) everyone falls in line; even
seventeen-year-old Lyla. At least she's trying to. Lyla wants to paint instead
of take target practice. And she'd rather think about the possibilities and
people outside the compound (like Cody, the cute son of the local sheriff) than
imagine married life in the silo with her intended, Will. As the end of days
draws closer, Lyla will have to do more than daydream—it's time to pick up a
gun, take a side, and let her family know exactly where she stands."
It may be a while before the book's release, but her cover is being revealed this Friday exclusively at IceyBooks. Make sure to check it out. You might even win something!
