Above by Leah Bobet

Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above--like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers. But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home--not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.

Straight-up honesty? I'm not even done reading this one?! I was SOOOO excited about it & waited on the edge of my seat for the release date & I feel like I'm pulling teeth trying to get through it! The writing style is very choppy, the storyline is so mish-mashed that I have no idea what they are talking about half the time. It seems like it should be a 2nd or 3rd book in a series & it's the author's first book & a stand alone. I don't know....maybe it's me, but totally NOT what I expected.
