Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Imagine living above the Earth on a floating city where a king rules the land and nobody is allowed to leave. This is the setting for Lauren DeStefano's new series The Internment Chronicles. The first book in this series is called Perfect Ruin and focuses on the life of Morgan Stockhour, a teenage girl born and raised on the floating utopia of Internment.

A murder of a teenage girl rocks the city of Internment because murder is a crime that is nearly unheard of and has not happened in decades. Morgan becomes obsessed with the murdered girl's little sister and her boyfriend who has been accused of the murder. Morgan begins to unravel the secrets of the government and finds out that nothing is what it seems in her perfect little world. She has always dreamed of life on the outside and what Earth must be like, but now it seems to be a matter of survival to find a way out.

This book is recommended for fans of dystopian future novels and fans of science fiction. It is a Young Adult book and the first book in the trilogy.
