A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating! 

Title: Court of Fives
Author: Kate Elliott
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: August 18th, 2015

Goodreads Blurb:
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 unlike 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.

Court of Fives’ sounds incredibly interesting! I’m really excited to read about the intense competition. This book definitely seems like one that I’d really enjoy.
