Waiting on Wednesday: Taken by Erin Bowman

Taken (Taken, #1)
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive. 
Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?
*Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the spine*
I know that this doesn't come out until 2013...but come on guys! THIS. IS. AWESOME. Let's take a minute to appreciate the cover. The colors look incredible together and the whole thing just creates a truly breathtaking image. Now, moving on to the synopsis? It sounds like something I haven't read about before. A unique story line. I also love that it has to do more with guys, because most dystopians are centered around girls and their story. Every now and then I love to read a book with a male point of view and this seems to be just the thing I want to read next. Too bad we will have to wait until April next year! The wait is killing me!
