Under the Never Sky

Under the Never Sky
by Veronica Rossi
Harper, 2012. 376 pgs. Young Adult Fiction

Aria is part of a group of people known as dwellers who live in large dome-like bunkers and spend their days partying in virtual realms. But when Aria is exiled to the outside after she and her friends break into an old bunker and things go horribly wrong, she meets Perry, a young man who has grown up outside fighting to survive in a world ravaged by terrible Æther storms.

Aria wants to find her mother who has recently moved to another dwelling and Perry is looking for his young nephew who was taken by the dwellers. They realize that neither one can achieve their goal on their own and so start a journey that changes both of their lives.

Alternating chapters tell the story from both Aria and Perry’s point of view. If I was rating this book, I would give it 3 out of 5 stars. It’s an enjoyable read, but it’s not amazing or anything. Though not as good, I would recommend it if you really enjoyed The Hunger Games or Divergent.
