In My Mailbox #12

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren!

With all the reading I'm doing for my Cybils panel, I haven't been requesting very many review copies lately, but I'm super psyched for this one:

The Line by Teri Hall. Dial Books for Young Readers, March 2010.

Here's the summary from the ARC:

Rachel lives quietly with her mother on The Property far from the city where the restrictive government is most active. She loves working with the orchids in the greenhouse there, but it is close to the Line - an uncrossable section of the National Border Defense System, an invisible barrier that encloses the entire country. Rachel is forbidden to go near it, never quite knowing what the danger is. Across the Line is Away. To Rachel, Away seems the same as anywhere else. Until the day she hears a recording that could only have come from across the Line.

It's a voice asking for help

Oooooh. My dystopia-loving heart is skipping a beat here. Can't wait to dig in..!

What was in YOUR mailbox this week?
