I Want to Read It (30): The Scourge

I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.

The Scourge by Jennifer A. Nielsen, August 30, 2016. Published by Scholastic Press. Source: Wishlist.
As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor's wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge -- and quarantine colony -- for the ill. The Scourge's victims, Ani now among them, can only expect to live out short, painful lives there. However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn't know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She's been caught in a devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover just what is actually going on. 
But will she and Weevil survive long enough to do so? 

Why:  If it's anything like her other books, then I simply need it! Jennifer A. Nielsen's books are incredible and The Scourge sounds like another winner! 

I admit, that I am quite curious to learn more about the Scourge and the Colony and see what's what. While I hadn't had this book on my radar till a coupe weeks ago- no time to browse upcoming releases by favorite authors- it has quickly piqued my interest. 

Have you read The Scourge or are you planning on reading it???
