This week I'm wishing for...

The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

Summary from Goodreads:

"Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her 'our little genius'. Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favourite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad."

Why I'm Wishing for It:
First off, I love the title. Second, doesn't that synopsis sound weird and creepy. And it's so cryptic. Why is this girl held in a cell? Why are guns pointed at her constantly? Why does her teacher get sad when this little child talks about the future? There are just too many questions that need answers, so I'm going to have to read this. 

What about you? What are you wishing for this week?
