Skyward: Book One in Brandon Sanderson's New Young Adult Series
From Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, and the internationally bestselling Mistborn series, comes the first book in an epic new series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.
Spensa's world has been under attack for decades. Now pilots are the heroes of what's left of the human race, and becoming one has always been Spensa's dream. Since she was a little girl, she has imagined soaring skyward and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with her father's--a pilot himself who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, leaving Spensa's chances of attending flight school at slim to none.
No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, yet fate works in mysterious ways. Flight school might be a long shot, but she is determined to fly. And an accidental discovery in a long-forgotten cavern might just provide her with a way to claim the stars.

A message from Brandon:
Every year, it gets harder and harder to do these signings, as readers' requests of me grow increasingly extravagant, with people asking me to draw sketches or write limericks in their books. I love and appreciate my fans, and I don't want to stop doing the signings, but boy is it getting tough to manage all of this.
I've decided the best way to handle this is to start charging a bit for charity in exchange for handling the more difficult requests. In part, this is to make sure that the people who truly want a personalization or more lengthy inscription are the ones getting one. I fear that many people see the posts by other people with extravagant requests fulfilled in their books, and then feel they need to ask for something similar.
If you just want your book signed (along with the number) then there is no charge. But if you want a personalization, this requires a donation to benefit Worldbuilders. Every donation made for inscriptions will be matched by the Lightweaver Foundation.
For a $5 donation to Worldbuilders, in addition to the price of the book, I will personalize your copy with a name of your choice-and will write a short line (chosen by me) from the book.
For a $20 donation to Worldbuilders, you can ask something more extreme of me. This still has to be within reason. Along with a name, you can ask me to write a specific quote in the book up to around fifty words, or you can ask for a simple sketch, or something like that. (If you must have a limerick, then I'll do that.)
Please note that my handwriting, as you may already know, is not fantastic-and the longer the thing you ask me to write, the more cramped it is going to look in the book. (Also, I can't draw worth a hill of beans, so be careful asking for sketches. You'll get a stick figure.)
Hopefully, this will calm things down a little for me during the signing process, but also make it certain that the people who have a special request are taken care of-all while doing some good for charity.
As always, thanks for reading, and please feel free to send me feedback about policies like this through the email form on my website.
