Title: Some Fine Day
Author: Kat Ross
Publication Date: July 1, 2014

Sixteen-year-old Jansin Nordqvist is on the verge of graduating from the black ops factory known as the Academy. She's smart and deadly, and knows three things with absolute certainty:

1. When the world flooded and civilization retreated deep underground, there was no one left on the surface.
2. The only species to thrive there are the toads, a primate/amphibian hybrid with a serious mean streak.
3. There's no place on Earth where you can hide from the hypercanes, continent-sized storms that have raged for decades.

Jansin has been lied to. On all counts.

Why?: I think the idea of environmental disasters making the world as we know it entirely uninhabitable is really interesting. Terrifying, but interesting. Because who says it can't happen? I'm really interested in learning about the hypercanes and the toads, and finding out why all three things that Jansin knows for certain are all lies! This sounds like it's going to be a really exciting read.

Expectations: I definitely expect there to be a lot of world building, since the world is flooded and people have moved underground. Also, I'm expecting all kinds of strange and terrible weather events, like the hypercanes. I think there might be a lot of military type people and things too, since Jansin is graduating from a black ops factory. I'm not really sure what else to expect though, since I've never read anything of Kat's! 

Judging a book by its cover: This cover is really simple, and I kind of love it. I love how there's a storm in her eye, since the hypercanes seem like they'll be an important part of this book. I also really like how the eye stands out against the all-white background. I definitely think it would stand out on a shelf, and I would totally pick it up if I saw it!
