Stuck by Jennifer Bosworth
Publication Date: May 8, 2012
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux BYR
Pages: 373

Goodreads Synopsis

Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.

Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities, populated by millions of homeless. Downtown is a wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the attendees drawn to the destruction by a magnetic force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power in the wake of the disaster, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing prophecies. They know she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the worse storm that is yet to come.

Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but he’s hiding a more sinister truth. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must unleash the full horror of her strength to save them all.

Plain and simple? Stuck sounds
I am actually thinking about e-mailing the publisher on this one, I want it so bad. And I have never done that before, so it is a little nerve racking. Lol
Mia sounds like a very promising MC and this Jeremy sounds pre-tty fascinating, if I do say so myself. I can't help it, YA book boys just make my blood boil. I think you can agree.
And that cover! 
I had it as one of my Cover Crazy posts, and I knew it would end up on here.
Okay, enough ranting...
But seriously....
TBR list.

What are you waiting for??
