Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles) by Lauren DeStefano
I was mildly interested and the book just doesn't measure up to her previous work. Leaving me disappointed and ambivalent about reading the rest of this series.
Perfect Ruin is a slow read with decent characters and an interesting plot. Morgan is a teen age girl who lives in Internment, a floating city in the sky. All citizen's are matched with a partner and grow up knowing who they will marry.
There are many rules in this society, it is heavily controlled by the king. Couples have to wait in a queue and be approved to have children. There is only so many people allowed in, Internment so people have to die in order for others to be born. The very most important rule is that no one is allowed on the edge and jumping can result in death , disfigurement or worse.
When, Morgan is young her brother attempts to jump from the edge and as a result is left blind. This has life altering affects for her family. Despite this life is rather ordinary for young, Morgan until the unthinkable happens in, Internment. A young teen girl from her class is found murdered on the train tracks and life for, Morgan changes drastically as she finds out that life on, Internment isn't as well constructed as it appears to be.
