This weeks pick...
Court of Fives (Court of Fives, #1)
"Court of Fives (Court of Fives #1)" by Kate Elliott
Expected Publication: August 18, 2015
In this imaginative escape into an enthralling new world, World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott begins a new trilogy with her debut young adult novel, weaving an epic story of a girl struggling to do what she loves in a society suffocated by rules of class and privilege.
Jessamy's life is a balance between acting like an upper class Patron and dreaming of the freedom of the Commoners. But at night she can be whomever she wants when she sneaks out to train for The Fives, an intricate, multi-level athletic competition that offers a chance for glory to the kingdom's best competitors. Then Jes meets Kalliarkos, and an unlikely friendship between a girl of mixed race and a Patron boy causes heads to turn. When a scheming lord tears Jes's family apart, she'll have to test Kal's loyalty and risk the vengeance of a powerful clan to save her mother and sisters from certain death.
From what I've seen of the reviews from people who had ARCs, they seem to like it! I love the idea of a girl (is she actually upper class, because I'm not too sure based of the synopsis) who is training for a competition, where she meets someone, and it seems like she may or may not be able to trust him... Friendship, scheming, loyalty, and vengeance; I can't wait!
