Waiting On Wednesday (10) - Above


Above by Leah Bobet
Publication Date: April,1st, 2012
Publisher: Arthur A. Levine Books
Find on: Goodreads, Amazon, Book Depository


Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above—like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.

But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home—not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.
If it's a dystopian, we immediately love it. A story about bees? Sounds weird and interesting!! Would love to see the dystopian and paranormal themes mixed. Definitely a book on our TBR list!
What are you waiting on this wednesday? 


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we are excited about.
