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.

Feels like I've waited forever for Perfect Ruin to come out. And soon it is here! I cannot wait to read it. I adore Lauren DeStefano so much, and I loved her other books, and I just know I will love this one too. Cannot wait to get to know Morgan and Pen and Basil and Judas. And the world! Sigh. So excited. <3

I still haven't read all of Lauren DeStefano's books yet, but I am really looking forward to this one. I thought about requesting a copy from the UK pub, but I think I might just wait it out now as there isn't too long to go. I hope you enjoy it, Carina! I can't wait to see what you think. :)ReplyDelete
i love that book cover! Have yet to read any of Lauren's books and I think I should start with this one.ReplyDelete
I still need to read her Chemical Garden trilogy! But I think the idea of a utopia is interesting.ReplyDelete

To be honest I was so disappointed with the ending of The Chemical Garden trilogy. Also synopsis of Perfect Ruin is a bit weird so I'm not all that excited. Funnily I have an ARC of it but my sister will be reviewing it.ReplyDelete
