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.
All the doctors can do is give her drugs and hope they keep her alive. So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of the 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. The sickness catches up with her.
Aza is lost to our world.
And found, by another.
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 she can use it to change the world.
As she navigates her new life, Aza discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. In Aza's hands lies the whole of humanity - including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?
Maria Dahvana Headley's soaring YA debut is a fiercely intelligent, multilayered fantasy rich with symbolism and steeped in allegory. Aza's journey pulls her deep into the questions of home, of love, of self, and of just what it means to find them all.

I wish there were more stars to give!
An absolutely spellbinding narrative. Once I started listening I could not turn it off, the story took me under two days to finish 😳😁
Unbelievably heartfelt acting. The narrators had me in tears so many times, I cannot rave more highly about their performances.
This is my new favourite book. I am over the moon. The world created and the characters who lived in it - just amazing.

Hooked from the beginning!
The narrators are awesome and the story is amazing! I went into this book, not sure what to expect because the summary sounded good. I was never bored and such a good read. Probably a new favorite book as well. If you're looking for something that isn't your usual type of book, go for it. The narrators totally make the book. I'm now off to recommend this to everyone I know!
