Waiting on Wednesday (#21): Tracked by Jenny Martin (May 5, 2015 by Dial Books)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Fast and the Furious gets a futuristic twist in this action-packed debut!

On corporately controlled Castra, rally racing is a high-stakes game that seventeen-year-old Phoebe Van Zant knows all too well. Phee’s legendary racer father disappeared mysteriously, but that hasn't stopped her from speeding headlong into trouble. When she and her best friend, Bear, attract the attention of Charles Benroyal, they are blackmailed into racing for Benroyal Corp, a company that represents everything Phee detests. Worse, Phee risks losing Bear as she falls for Cash, her charming new teammate. But when she discovers that Benroyal is controlling more than a corporation, Phee realizes she has a much bigger role in Castra’s future than she could ever have imagined. It's up to Phee to take Benroyal down. But even with the help of her team, can a street-rat destroy an empire?

OKAY BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT THIS BOOK, THE PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL FROM PENGUIN DESCRIBES THIS AS A MIX BETWEEN THE FAST AND FURIOUS (which I don't really care about)  AND FIREFLY (which I really DO care about)

"father disappeared mysteriously"


"blackmailed"


"Cash, her charming new teammate"


"Can a street-rat destroy an empire?"


What are you waiting for this week?
