Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1), by Lauren DeStefano
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Dystopian
Rating: 3/5 stars
Goodreads Summary: "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."
- Lauren DeStefano is one of my most favourite authors. I loved her trilogy, Wither, and I was so excited to hear that she is beginning a new dystopian trilogy. New characters and a new beginning was exactly what I was looking for.
- Where was the goodness here? This book didn't end up the way I expected it. I wanted a deeper story with more happening whatsoever. The characters were very boring and they didn't seem heroic at all.
- This is classified as a dystopian book, but I don't think that it was a good idea at all. It seems like some of the lower class ones with no big idea just random things happening.
- I wanted better! More romance, more dystopian, more drama!
