WoW [34]

Waiting on Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW feature is:

Perfect Ruin [The Internment Chronicles #1]
by Lauren DeStefano
Expected Publication: October 1, 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster BYR

Summary via Goodreads...
On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.

  11. All I needed were the words 'floating island in the clouds' to add this to my TBR, haha. I totally agree about the description in its entirety though, it is awesome! I really enjoyed Lauren DeStefano's writing in the Chemical Garden trilogy, so I'm looking forward to seeing what she brings to this book. And that cover is so pretty, I love how it's slightly blurred. A beauty is what it is. <3
