The book trailer has been unleashed for Scythe by Neal Shusterman. The video embedded above offers details about the story.

According to the National Book Award-winning author’s Tumblr post, this book will be the first title in his new science-fiction series. Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers will publish this young adult novel on November 22.

Here’s more from Entertainment Weekly: “Scythe takes place in a world free of the swine flu and ebola scares of our current reality. Disease has been completely eradicated. Which sounds great, right? But there‚Äôs a little problem. Population growth must now be controlled by reapers called scythes, who ‘glean’ (a.k.a. kill) people at random.” (via School Library Journal)
