Waiting on Wedneday: This Monstrous Thing

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

 I am waiting on:

This Monstrous Thing
Title: This Monstrous Thing
Author: Mackenzi Lee 
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Publication Date: September 22, 2015
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Steampunk, 
In 1818 Geneva, men built with clockwork parts live hidden away from society, cared for only by illegal mechanics called Shadow Boys. Two years ago, Shadow Boy Alasdair Finch’s life shattered to bits.
His brother, Oliver—dead.
His sweetheart, Mary—gone.
His chance to break free of Geneva—lost.
Heart-broken and desperate, Alasdair does the unthinkable: He brings Oliver back from the dead.
But putting back together a broken life is more difficult than mending bones and adding clockwork pieces. Oliver returns more monster than man, and Alasdair’s horror further damages the already troubled relationship.
Then comes the publication of Frankenstein and the city intensifies its search for Shadow Boys, aiming to discover the real life doctor and his monster. Alasdair finds refuge with his idol, the brilliant Dr. Geisler, who may offer him a way to escape the dangerous present and his guilt-ridden past, but at a horrible price only Oliver can pay…
Why am I waiting?
A retelling of Frankenstein right before Halloween, where do I sign up. I like everything this blurb describes, and I always love when someone takes a story and makes readers see it from another side. I also like that there is a steam-punk element added on to the story as well.
What are you waiting on?
