Waiting on Wednesday, #57

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

Here's my selection for this week...

Atlantia by Ally Condie (Goodreads Author)
Expected publication: October 28, 2014
Publisher: Dutton Children's
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.

I was a huge fan of Condie's Matched series because of her flawless world-building and strong casting, so when I came across this newest novel, I stopped for a second glance. Atlantia sounds like it will be captivating and full of suspense.  I'm definitely looking forward to jumping into Condie's newest series Atlantia!
