Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano
Publication Date: October 1st 2013


Perfect Ruin -
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
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.
Synopsis from goodreads.com. 

Perfect Ruin is the first book in the Internment Chronicles. Nonplussed at first by the contradictory title, I took a closer look at the synopsis: An ordinary girl in a boring world is investigating a murder on a floating island. I'd say that sounds quite life changing for the girl and exciting to me. :) Funnily enough, I took an instant liking to the names and can't help thinking that they have a special meaning. I am looking forward to see how DeStefano builds up a world in the clouds where no one knows about the ground, and wonder where the story will lead.
