Most Wanted...Continued (UK)

Another book I forgot to mention on my previous post that I am excited for is the following which was also released last week (5th August)

4. The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams

Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in her isolated community without ever questioning the fact that her father has three wives and she has twenty brothers and sisters; without ever questioning the strict rules imposed by 'the Prophet' who leads them. But now Kara has started keeping secrets. She reads books that are forbidden and sneaks away to meet Joshua, the boy she hopes to choose for herself, instead of having a husband chosen for her. Kyra knows it's only a matter of time before her two secret loves arer discovered. And when the Prophet decrees that she is to become the seventh wife of her sixty-year-old uncle, Kyra is forced to make a desperate choice. But saving herself means endangering everyone she's ever cared for. How far should she go for freedom?
I'm really looking forward to reading this one. It sounds really emotional and a deep read about difficult choices.
