TBR TUESDAY: Let the Sky Fall

(Cover extra large because it's frigging GORGEOUS!)
I think y'all know by now that I'm always on the lookout for something new in the YA world, and this week I've chosen to highlight a novel I'm highly anticipating, Shannon Messenger's LET THE SKY FALL. (Lifted from Goodreads) Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love. The title piqued my interest, the blurb below cinched it, and then I got all drooly and manic once the cover was revealed. I'll let you read the blurb and see if you don't start dying from want, too. 

BLURB (lifted from Shannon's site):

Vane Weston should have died in the category five tornado that killed his parents. Instead, he woke up in a pile of rubble with no memories of his past—except one: a beautiful, dark-haired girl standing in the winds. She's swept through his dreams ever since, and he clings to the hope that she's real.
Audra is real, but she isn't human. She's a sylph, an air elemental who can walk on the wind, translate its alluring songs, even twist it into a weapon. She's also a guardian—Vane’s guardian—and has sworn an oath to protect him at all costs. 
When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra has just days to help Vane unlock his memories. And as the storm winds gather, they start to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance growing between them.

Coming Spring 2013 from Simon & Schuster (Simon Pulse)
