9780007541225: Perfect Ruin (Internment Chronicles, Book 1)

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogy: 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.

Review:

Praise for The Chemical Garden series:

A 'harrowing debut … DeStefano has an observant and occasionally pitiless eye, chronicling the cruelties, mercies, and inconsistencies of her young characters… It will be intriguing to see how DeStefano develops [the larger world] as this promising trilogy progresses' Publisher's Weekly starred review

'Lauren DeStefano crafts an all too believable future. I loved the world, the romance, the writing – exactly the kind of book I've been craving to read' Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH

'[A] thought-provoking debut, reminiscent of The Handmaid's Tale with a touch of Big Love … Rhine's fight for freedom against the clock-and the dissecting table-will leave readers eager for the sequel. Give this one to fans of The Hunger Games trilogy or Ally Condie's Matched' Kirkus
