Waiting on Wednesday: Illusive

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: Illusive
Author: Emily Lloyd-Jones
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Date of Release: July 15, 2014 

Goodreads Description: When the MK virus swept across the planet, a vaccine was created to stop the epidemic, but it came with some unexpected side effects. A small percentage of the population developed superhero-like powers. Seventeen-year-old Ciere Giba has the handy ability to change her appearance at will. She's what's known as an illusionist...She's also a thief. After a robbery goes awry, Ciere must team up with a group of fellow super-powered criminals on another job that most would consider too reckless. The formula for the vaccine that gave them their abilities was supposedly destroyed years ago. But what if it wasn't? The lines between good and bad, us and them, and freedom and entrapment are blurred as Ciere and the rest of her crew become embroiled in a deadly race against he government that could cost them their lives.

Why am I waiting? I love books where characters have superpowers. This has been marketed as "X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven" so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it lives up to its potential.

  3. Though it has me at X-Men, I really hope it's not a let down because I take my X-Men seriously. ;)

  7. X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven is a pretty cool descriptor! I'll be on the lookout for early reviews because I agree it has great potential.
