UNDER THE NEVER SKY by Veronica Rossi
WORLDS KEPT THEM APART.
DESTINY BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER.
Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.
Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He's searching for someone too. He's also wild - a savage - but might be her best hope at staying alive.
If they can survive, they are each other's best hope for finding answers.
Not sure I could quite get across just how excited I am about this book! Love the premise, and what bits I've read of it already have me so excited, I suspect this will be one of those I'll struggle to put down while I'm at the dinner table. There's just something about outsider stories that really draws me in. I think, maybe, because so much of my life, I've felt like an outsider, never quite fitting in no matter where I was. Sometimes I wonder if we all feel this way. A little? Ohhhhh, I sense a blog post in the making...
Anyway, I wanted to tell you, first, it's out now! I just got a copy of it. And despite how busy I am (perhaps you've noticed I haven't posted in a million years?), I'm squeezing this sucker in.
And second, I wanted to wish Veronica a hearty congratulations!!!
<3 <3 Congratulations!!! <3 <3

On another note, I'm still around. Sort of. I'm finishing up a major project, while also trying to prepare for my Haiti trip, which has turned out to be much greater of an undertaking than I anticipated. Thus, something in my life has to get the shaft while I focus on these two very important things. As I'm reluctant to let the victim be my family, it's had to be my online activity.
I do miss you guys, though. But don't worry. I shall not forget what you look like, or the sound of your voice. I will try to post a couple of times before I leave, and then hopefully, I can blog from Haiti. That's the plan anyway. And after Haiti, well. Maybe we can have a little chat. Some tea, perhaps? A couple glasses of wine?
Miss me, miss me. Now you gotta kiss me.
P.S. Dude. I collected about $1100 for this medical mission!!!! How amazing, no? I owe it all to you guys! Tomorrow, I'll be making my final medicine purchase, several thousand prenatal vitamins. It's unbelievable how much medicine there is, you guys. All of it has to be broken down into small bags, too (of 7, 14, and 30, depending on the medicine)--this is a HUGE amount of work, so I've had to enlist some help (I used CAPS and italics in case you weren't sure how huge). But as you can imagine, getting help requires work, too, as I have to prepare the medicines, bags, and labels, and then instruct people what to do. But it will all be worth it. I can't wait to post the pictures just of all the medicine. It's freaking astounding. I <3 you guys, and all the support you've shown.
Seriously. Whenever I have a rough day, I think about this. About you guys. You renew my faith.
