MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skylark, a debut YA novel written by Meagan Spooner and published by Carolrhoda Lab™, an imprint of Lerner Publishing Group, introduces readers to life in the City. Children in the City grow up expecting to be harvested, and Lark Ainsley was no different. For fifteen years, Lark Ainsley waited for the day when her Resource would be harvested and she would finally be an adult. After the harvest she expected a small role in the regular, orderly operation of the City within the Wall. She expected to do her part to maintain the refuge for the last survivors of the Wars. She expected to be a tiny cog in the larger clockwork of the city.
Lark did not expect to become the City's power supply.
In Skylark, author Meagan Spooner sends readers with Lark on a daring and desperate escape from the only world she's ever known. Beyond the Wall, Lark discovers that nothing is as she expects, and nearly everything she’s ever been told is a lie...
