Waiting on Wednesday: Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is LEVEL 2 by Lenore Appelhan.  LEVEL 2 releases on January 15, 2013 from Simon Schuster Books for Young Readers.

In this gripping exploration of a futuristic afterlife, a teen discovers that death is just the beginning.  Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow drones, Felicia passes the endless hours reliving memories of her time on Earth and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and Neil, the boy she loved.

Then a girl in a neighboring chamber is found dead, and nobody but Felicia recalls that she existed in the first place. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, Felicia learns the truth: If she joins the rebellion to overthrow the Morati, the angel guardians of Level 2, she can be with Neil again.

Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself at the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind.
First off..the cover is gorgeous!  I love all the white and silver--its so surreal, and it just seems like the perfect representation for a book about the afterlife.  I find the idea of this book very interesting, especially the idea of the Morati and how it would be possible to overthrow them.  Plus, there is the "dangerously charming" guy that I know, just from this slight description, that I will fall for!  I just can't help it; I like the mysterious ones.  The reviews of this one have been very positive so far, and I can't wait to read about the suspense, the secrets, and the boys!
