Waiting on Wednesday (5): Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights future releases of books that I'm excited about! Here it is...
 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.
Doesn't this cover look so lovely? And look it matches my blog! I fell in love with Lauren DeStefano's writing style since she wrote her Chemical Garden Trilogy. Her writing is so magical and poetic. This is her new series that I have already heard is better than her last series. Would you want to live in the sky on a cloud? I'm not sure I would since I'm afraid of heights, but then you don't know what happened to earth. Very mysterious. I cannot wait to read this! Lucky for me it comes out in a couple of weeks! 
Perfect Ruin will be released on October 1, 2013 by Simon & Schuster
