Into the Air

Like everyone else in the world, Mia Bryn lives in the dark. Buried in an underground compound, her life is spent in brief allotments of florescent light and dwindling food supplies. But when a letter arrives, Mia and her father are invited to embark on a journey that no one else has been allowed to take for over a hundred years. They are asked to leave the ground and travel into the air. But the outside world is more surprising and dangerous than Mia could have ever imagined. To survive, she must trust her instincts, learn about a world she knows nothing about, and accept her destiny.

“Downing’s Into The Air is that fresh take on the YA post-apocalyptic vision we’ve all been waiting for. Mia Bryn is a wonderful character—one who starts out charmingly mortal but soon becomes the heroine we, and her people, need her to be. Can’t wait for the next Mia chapter!” Bruce McAllister, Author of the Cybils-nominated The Village Sang to the Sea: A Memoir of Magic “There’s a new star in the Young Adult firmament—A. K. Downing’s series, beginning with Into The Air, is sure to be a reader favorite right up there with The Hunger Games and The 100 trilogy.” Richard Snodgrass , Author of There’s Something in the Back Yard
“Did you ever feel so lost that you didn’t know if the ground was above your head or below your feet?”
Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies 

Review: I'm always a little nervous when starting a new book. Will I like the characters? Will they become like my own family? Will I get so swept up in the story the world will melt away around me? This book absolutely blew me away. Mia, a girl who has spent almost all her life below the ground, How could I possibly identify with her. Yet reading this, your heart begins to ache for Mia and the life she has been forced to live. Each new experience she has brings with it a new appreciation for things we take for granted every day. You find yourself marveling over the little things - trees, the scent of fresh air, moist dirt, birds singing. An amazing and beautifully told story of courage and hope in the face of the unknown, Into the Air is a must read for anyone who enjoys getting lost in a good book.
