Waiting on Wednesday (#22): Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted over at Breaking the Spine and gives bloggers the chance to highlight upcoming releases we're excited about.

 Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon

Published: 5th June 2014 (Bloomsbury)
Buy: Amazon|Hive
Plot summary: Catherine Hunter is the daughter of a senior government official on the island of Anglya. She’s one of the privileged – she has luxurious clothes, plenty to eat, and is protected from the Collections which have ravaged families throughout the land. But Catherine longs to escape the confines of her life, before her dad can marry her off to a government brat and trap her forever.
So Catherine becomes Cat, pretends to be a kid escaping the Collections, and stows away on the skyship Stormdancer. As they leave Anglya behind and brave the storms that fill the skies around the islands of Tellus, Cat’s world becomes more turbulent than she could ever have imagined, and dangerous secrets unravel her old life once and for all . . .

So I love me some YA sci-fi! This sounds like it has some great political stuff to sink your teeth into and I love books that explore class divisions. I'd chosen this book before I was approved for a review copy so now I'm even more excited that I'll be getting a chance to read it soon. Keep an eye out for the review nearer publication date! What are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments!
