Read First Chapter of Ally Condie’s ATLANTIA

Though Ally Condie’s latest book since the end of the MATCHED trilogy, ATLANTIA, doesn’t come out until this autumn, USA Today’s Book Buzz has released the entire first chapter for your reading pleasure! Get introduced to our main character, Rio, her sister, and the underwater yet still very human world that they inhabit in this great teaser!


My sister’s gone.

She decided to go Above.

She would never do this.

She did.

The last thing she said to me was that the city was breathing.

I hear my own breathing now, in and out and in and out. I live here. I will die here.

I am never going to leave.


ATLANTIA comes out November 4, 2014!
