Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths. (Goodreads)

I've seen this book around the internet a lot lately,
and I have to admit... I'm curious!
I've not read anything by this author before,
but my daughter has read her Matched series and loved it!
I can't wait to check this book out.

What are you Waiting on this week??

**"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine,
that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.**


  1. Soo, I didn't love the Matched books a whole lot. BUT. ATLANTIA totally makes me think of Atlantis and, therefore, awesomeness, so consider me intrigued!

  5. I didn't like Ally Condie's Matched series so much but this sounds pretty interesting and (fingers crossed) better than Matched... I'm hoping to read some reviews on this so I can really decide if I'll read it or not... Nice pick!
