Waiting on Wednesday: Perfect Ruin, Lauren DeStefano

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine to spotlight upcoming book releases that we're excited about.

This week's pick:

Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1)
Release Date: October 1, 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Format: Hardcover, 368 pages

Description from 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.

DeStefano blew me away with her Chemical Garden trilogy. Her writing is beautiful and it's so easy to get lost in the worlds she makes. So I can't wait to see what new world she'll show us in this new series, set on a floating city far from any land. I'm sure it with just as breathtaking as her last.
