Waiting on Wednesday *102*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week:

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley
Expected Publication: April 28th 2015 by HarperCollins

Aza Ray is drowning in thin air.

Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live.

So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.

Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia.

Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—and as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. And in Aza’s hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?
The second I read the blurb for Magonia, I was sold. You don't often come across a concept this unique, so when one does, it makes an impression.  I love the idea of Magonia and Earth coexisting as their fates collide, with the protagonist Aza stuck in between both worlds.  And, I mean, there are ships sailing above the clouds! I am so there.

Anyone else waiting on Magonia? Let me know
Oh and don't forget to link me up ;)
