Time for today's "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next upcoming YA from the top of my TBR!
Earth Flight (Earth Girl #3)
Releases in 8 September 2015 from Pyr
Jarra never wanted to be a celebrity. All she ever wanted was to gain some respect for the people left on Earth: the unlucky few whose immune system prevents them from portaling to other planets.
Except now she's the most famous Earth girl in the universe--but not everyone in the universe is happy about it, nor the fact that she has found love with a norm. Jarra's actions have repercussions that spread further than she ever could have imagined, and political unrest threatens to tear apart the delicate balance of peace between humanity's worlds.
On top of everything, the first alien artifact ever discovered appears to be waiting for Jarra to reveal its secrets. But to do so, she must somehow find a way to leave Earth--or else the alien artifact will be lost forever. Is there a way for Jarra to travel to another planet? Or is her destiny only to look to the stars--but never to reach them?

Y'all know by this point that Earth Girl has been a big recommendation for me in terms of disabled representation, mostly because Jarra is a truly kickbutt heroine in the vein of Hermione Granger, in a YA sci-fi novel, with a disability. That doesn't happen much, sadly. And true, it's not a standard disability you see today, but it's the same idea. and I love it! So I look forward greatly to this (concluding?) novel in the series.
See you in a bit for my regular Wednesday post, on introverts and extroverts.
