Waiting on Wednesday (#72) - Magnolia by Maria Dahvana Headley

 
 Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

 Magonia

Goodreads Summary: Neil Gaiman’s Stardust meets John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars in this fantasy about a girl caught between two worlds…two races…and two destinies.

Aza Ray is drowning in thin air.

Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live.

So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.

Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia.

Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—and as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. And in Aza’s hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?

Why I'm Waiting For It: Ummm...first off, Stardust?! It's one of my favorite movies and since it's blurb with John Green's TFIOS, I have such big hope for this book!

The concept does sound a bit like Stardust, but I have a feeling Headley will take a different turn with the book and totally bring something unexpected. Plus, the cover looks amazing!

Magnolia will hit shelves on April 28, 2015 from HarperCollins
