"Love ain't like that.""How is it then?" Peaches asked, turning on her stomach to face me."It's like sky. If you keep driving and driving, gas will run out, right?""That's why we gotta go to the gas station.""Yep. But have you ever seen the sky run out? No matter how far we go?""No, when we look up, there it is.""Well that's the kind of love Daddy and Mama got for us, Peache...

Thank you to Leslie C. Youngblood for providing an ARC for review to #collabookation.
Love Like Sky is a beautiful book about a family in transition. G-Baby's life has changed so much in just a few years. Her parents were separated, and subsequently divorced. Her mother got remarried to a great new husband who has a daughter of his own. Her father has a new significant other as well. Navigating a new town (they moved due to the new marriage) while holding on to her friends back home is a challeng ...more
NOTE: I received an eARC via NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
The storyline and lovely cover drew me in to Love Like Sky, but unfortunately it didn't quite hold up. It is hard to write a brief, but accurate synopsis as this book has a lot going on in it, which is one of the reasons it fell short for me. G-Baby is trying to deal with her sick sister, a new stepsister who seems to hate her, a growing interest in a boy, a new blended family and relocation, her best frien ...more
I had the opportunity to read a NetGalley digital ARC of this middle grade novel in exchange for a review. So many families experience stress when divorce occurs, and the original partners marry other people and bring different members together into what is called “blended families”.

This realistic fiction story addresses that in a way that many mid ...more
Mini Me review: One of my favorite books this year. It was a story about love and how a family sticks together to make it through hard times.
