After her mother’s death, Sky is forced to leave her city life behind and move in with her aunt and uncle in a small Australian town. But the city isn’t all that she leaves behind. Trying to fit in with her new friends means doing things she never dreamt she’d do. And falling for the school queen’s crush is the least of her worries when she’s confronted by tightly guarded family secrets…
Ondine Sherman’s novel Sky takes readers on a roller coaster of emotions that leaves them rooting for justice to prevail over unfair social norms time and again. It offers a good lesson for us all that kindness toward others—including those who don’t reciprocate it—makes us all better off.”

Sky is a beautifully moving book about a young Australian girl who although faced with difficult circumstances, finds her voice and learns to speak up for herself and those who cannot speak for themselves.

Sky is a very well-written book with an interesting heroine and a great story. Sky touches on issues common to all teenagers, so you don’t have to be vegan or into animal rights to get a lot out of it.”
