Waiting on Wednesday (01) The Other Life

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker
Publisher: Usborne
Release Date: February 1st, 2012
Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.

Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.

While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.

Does this not sound fantastic? I've been seeing this on the blog-sphere this past week, and I just need to showcase it, in case there's someone out there who hasn't seen it.
I love the premise, the cover, everything. I love zombie survival stories, so I'm expecting a lot from this book. And I feel that I won't be disappointed.

What are you waiting on this week?
