Waiting on Wednesday: Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where you talk about whatever book you are IMPATIENTLY WAITING for!

This week I am waiting for...
Spare and Found Parts

Nell Crane has always been an outsider. In a city devastated by an epidemic, where survivors are all missing parts—an arm, a leg, an eye—her father is the famed scientist who created the biomechanical limbs everyone now uses. But Nell is the only one whose mechanical piece is on the inside: her heart. Since the childhood operation, she has ticked. Like a clock, like a bomb. As her community rebuilds, everyone is expected to contribute to the society’s good . . . but how can Nell live up to her father’s revolutionary idea when she has none of her own?

Then she finds a mannequin hand while salvaging on the beach—the first boy’s hand she’s ever held—and inspiration strikes. Can Nell build her own companion in a world that fears advanced technology? The deeper she sinks into this plan, the more she learns about her city—and her father, who is hiding secret experiments of his own.
Release Date: October 4th 2016

Why am I waiting?
I love the idea behind this book and I'm excited to read it!
What book are you waiting for this week?


  1. I can’t wait for this one too! It sounds absolutely fantastic and totally unique...some of the synopsis reminds me a teensy bit of THIS MONSTROUS THING. Great pick this week!! :D

  2. Sounds interesting and I really like the cover. Like Rabiah said, it does remind me a tad of This Monstrous Thing which I really enjoyed. Great pick and hope you love it!
