Waiting on Wednesday #2

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

From Goodreads: Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

Publication date: October 28, 2014

While Ally Condie's Matched trilogy wasn't my favorite series, I did enjoy it enough to be excited when I saw that she has a new book coming out soon. After reading the first chapter (click here to read the excerpt), I am even more excited. It sounds like a unique and interesting tale about Rio, a Siren, who is left Below in Atlantia when her twin sister, Bay, chooses to go live Above. Ally's writing is so poetic and rich that it always seems to pull me in from the start, and refuses to let go until I've finished the book. I hope that proves true for this one, as well.
