Waiting on Wednesday: Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

 What I'm waiting for...


Nell Crane has always been an outsider. In a city devastated by an epidemic, where survivors are all missing parts—an arm, a leg, an eye—her father is the famed scientist who created the biomechanical limbs everyone now uses. But Nell is the only one whose mechanical piece is on the inside: her heart. Since the childhood operation, she has ticked. Like a clock, like a bomb. As her community rebuilds, everyone is expected to contribute to the society’s good . . . but how can Nell live up to her father’s revolutionary idea when she has none of her own?

Then she finds a mannequin hand while salvaging on the beach—the first boy’s hand she’s ever held—and inspiration strikes. Can Nell build her own companion in a world that fears advanced technology? The deeper she sinks into this plan, the more she learns about her city—and her father, who is hiding secret experiments of his own.


Why am I waiting on this book? Ahhhh! this book sounds so cute! It reminds me a little of Pure by Julianna Baggott. I liked that book and I'm lucky to have an eARC of this one. So, I hope it's great!

What about you?



  1. This sounds pretty good, weird, but good! I hope you enjoy it when you get to read it!

  2. I have not heard of this book! Nor have I read Pure, though I remember when that series published. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Lis. =)

  3. Oh wow! This sounds brilliant -- and definitely one of the most unique premises!
