Some Books Ago: The Ward (The Ward #1) by Jordana Frankel

Some Books Ago is a shout out to all those books published some years ago, because I don't want you to forget them!

Hi there! I'm back from an unexpected break because my computer had a BIG problem like... two weeks ago, and since laptops are REALLY expensive here in my country I couldn't get a new one. So, had to wait until my cousin helped me fix it. And... well, he did it for free so it wasn't priority. 
But I'm back again and I missed all the lovely blogs I read everyday and I missed Goodreads so much, which was unexpected, too.  

Anyway. Today I want to share with you The Ward by Jordana Frankel. I think it's been forever since I added this book to my TBR, but I never had the chance to read it. Have you? Was it good?

The Ward was published on: April 30th 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books  



Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.

However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.

Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.



  1. Yey! Glad you're back. This one sounds interesting :D

  2. *waves* Hey hey! Glad you got some help with your computer!

    I remember reading this book! I think I gave it three stars - it didn't impress me, and I didn't love it. There were some cool action-y scenes, but overall, not the best story (for *me*). I didn't even read the sequel! Still, I love this book's cover. It is so great!
