Cleanliness (See “About” for scale): Slightly Tainted (8+ Euphemisms. Other content to consider: name-calling, nakedness, and multiple deaths.)
You’ve heard all the tales of an abandoned child being raised by wolves, now get ready for the little girl raised by ibex! This middle-grade fiction is about as weird as it sounds. Maybe a kid would enjoy it more than I did.
Blue Sky is actually a pretty intense story. It has fantasy, mystery, magic, and a lot of sadness and death. There were quite a few moments for me that seemed to try to be really deep, but just ended up just sounding weird. Visions and dreams were also a big part of the story.
This tale did show that if you put your mind to something, you can accomplish it. One little girl can make a big difference.
I did not necessarily enjoy this book, but it I am not its intended audience. Maybe you will like it more than I!
