Perfect Ruin (Internment Chronicles, #1)

Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Expected publication:   3rd October  2013

Publisher: Harper Voyager

From Goodreads:

On the floating city of Internment, you can be anything you dream. Unless you approach the edge.

Morgan Stockhour knows getting too close to the edge of Internment, the floating city in the clouds where she lives, can lead to madness. Even though her older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. If she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in her best friend, Pen, and in Basil, the boy she’s engaged to marry.

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 once she meets Judas. Betrothed to the victim, he is the boy being blamed for the murder, 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 whom she will lose.

    I’m so curious about this book too! Looking forward to see what else is up her sleeve after The Chemical Garden trilogy. Nice pick!

      I don’t go on Twitter much but she’s been pimping it a lot on Facebook, too. I’ve been looking forward to it a lot because I love her writing style. I would pay to read that woman’s grocery list.

    I definitely need it to get a move on on the chemical garden trilogy because I know it’s one of your favorites (and I kind of want to read it before this new series comes out)… Perhaps I’ll pick it up after I finish poison study. 🙂

      Ooooh, yes! The writing in the Chemical Gardens is just brilliant. The worldbuilding seems a bit dodgy at first and some of the society rules don’t make sense, but I think you’ll enjoy it.
