Waiting on Wednesday: Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we discuss what books we can't wait for! My pick for today is:
 
 Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Expected Release Date: March 18, 2014
Add to Goodreads
Preorder from Amazon

Synopsis from Goodreads: 
 
Soon, Elusion® will change the world and life as we know it.

A new technology called Elusion is sweeping the country. An app, visor and wristband will virtually transport you to an exotic destination where adventure can be pursued without the complications—or consequences—of real life.

Regan is an Elusion insider. Or at least she used to be. Her father invented the program, and her best friend, Patrick, heir to the tech giant Orexis, is about to release it nationwide. But ever since her father’s unexpected death, Regan can’t bear to Escape, especially since waking up from the dream means crashing back to her grim reality.

Still, when there are rumors of trouble in Elusion—accusations that it’s addictive and dangerous— Regan is determined to defend it. But the critics of Elusion come from surprising sources, including Josh, the handsome skeptic with his own personal stakes. As Regan investigates the claims, she discovers a disturbing web of secrets. She will soon have to choose between love and loyalty…a decision that will affect the lives of millions.

Suspense, thrills, and romance fuel this near-future story about the seductive nature of a perfect virtual world, and how far one girl will go to uncover the truth behind the illusions.
 
Why I'm Waiting:
 
That cover! *drools* The colors and swirling lights on the cover is what immediately attracted me to this book. Then I read the synopsis and was even more intrigued. It kind of reminds of Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi where the Dwellers can escape to the Realms. Of course this book is minus the crazy Aether storms. But it sounds awesome nonetheless. I love that Elusion could be addictive. Addiction seems to give books such a dangerous edge. And I have a feeling that there's going to be a swoony boy... And who doesn't love a swoony boy??

  3. Iiiiiiii am so looking forward to this book. I love the description, but I'm 99% sure I was sold just because of how beautiful the cover is. I might judge books by the cover a little bit. I don't even care. If I could get a print of this for my room/office, I totally would.

    Such a great pick!
