Can’t Wait Wednesday | Survive the Dome – Kosoko Jackson

We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Black Lives Matter meets Attack the Block with a dash of Under the Dome in this stunning story of teens using their talents to liberate a city from unjust police occupation

Jamal Lawson just wanted to be a part of something. As an aspiring journalist, he packs up his camera and heads to Baltimore to document a rally protesting police brutality after another Black man is murdered.

But before it even really begins, the city implements a new safety protocol…the Dome. The Dome surrounds the city, forcing those within to subscribe to a total militarized shutdown. No one can get in, and no one can get out.

Alone in a strange place, Jamal doesn’t know where to turn…until he meets hacker Marco, who knows more than he lets on, and Catherine, an AWOL basic-training-graduate, whose parents helped build the initial plans for the Dome.

As unrest inside of Baltimore grows throughout the days-long lockdown, Marco, Catherine, and Jamal take the fight directly to the chief of police. But the city is corrupt from the inside out, and it’s going to take everything they have to survive.

March is always a good month for book releases! And this is one of the releases I’m really excited about. I really enjoy sci-fi lately and I’m always on the lookout for more of it. This one sounds like something I will love and I hope I’m right.

Survive the Dome has some elements of Under the Dome, a story I loved! I also think it sounds a bit like Containment, a underrated tv show. The main characters already sound interesting and I have some ideas about what might happen.

Hopefully this will live up to my expectations. The early reviews are positive but I feel like not many people know about this one yet. I hope to have put it on the radar for some of you with this post! Are you exciting about this release? Let me know down below!
