Waiting on Wednesday: Above by Leah Bobet

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Above by Leah Bobet
Published by: Arthur A. Levine Books
Release date: April 1st, 2012


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


Why I want to read it: Besides the gorgeous cover this books sound so interesting, like a mix of fantasy / dystopian.  I am curious to learn about the gifted group of friends and what is going on Above.
