"The Sky So Heavy" (a breakout Lexi review)


While I'm watching "Misery" (it's a GREAT movie, so go see it!!!), I'm somewhat staring at my Nook after a few days of trying to stick with this book I'm reading. I love my job, but I would love one day of pure reading. I'm totally not complaining though. Life is pretty awesome, if you look hard enough at the great little things.

Anywho, on to the book! The book of the day is The Sky So Heavy by Claire Zorn...

Summary: "For Fin, it's just like any other day - racing for the school bus, bluffing his way through class, and trying to remain cool in front of the most sophisticated girl in his universe, Lucy. Only it's not like any other day because, on the other side of the world, nuclear missiles are being detonated. 

From an exciting new voice in Australian YA literature, Claire Zorn, comes a haunting novel, The Sky So Heavy - a mesmerising story inspired by the continued debate over Australia's treatment of asylum-seekers and how a line through a map can determine your fate." (Thank you guys at Goodreads!!!)

The pace of novel was a drag. I hate saying this because I was all hyped about this novel. Eventually, after over one hundred pages, I gave up trying. No joke. I love the idea of it, just not the execution. Nothing had me reeled in with this one. So I'm going to say...

In Conclusion: If I couldn't stay interested, that's a problem. I'd skip this and read another book in the genre.
