Wishlist Wednesday (7)

Hi! Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. You find a book on your wishlist that you are dying to get on your shelves and you share that book in a post. This week my book is:

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

Book Blurb from Goodreads:

In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.
I am intrigued by the idea that classes are divided by different languages. I think it also sounds interesting that the MC, Charlaina, can speak all the languages. This book is promising to be unique and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
