Finished July 16
Skylark by Meagan Spooner

This novel is obviously the beginning of a series. It begins in the City, within the Wall, where Lark Ainsley has been waiting for the day her Resource would be harvested, just like that of every other child in the City. But she is older than any of the other unharvested children at sixteen, and when her turn comes, she finds it is nothing like she thought.
Instead of being harvested and released back to a defined role within the City, she is expected to provide the   City with a power source, and she finds she has no option but to flee.
Beyond the Wall is somewhere she has never been, and she wonders whether the tales she has heard are true. She encounters situations and people that she has never imagined, and finds a larger world than she expected. Lark's journey has just begun, but she continues to learn about herself and what she is capable of doing.
A dystopian teen novel, with an interesting twist of magic.
