Yesterday, I wrote all of my students’ names down on…
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Love Like Sky by Leslie C Youngblood
I was drawn to Love Like Sky after seeing some other book reviewers and teachers recommend it on social media. I was also drawn the simple, yet elegant cover. I began reading and was immediately drawn in by the overwhelming sense of love between the two sisters, G-Baby and Peaches. As I read, I found myself laughing and crying. I found myself identifying with this very accurate portrayal of divorced families and how the children feel about step families. I had many of the same experiences with step families and divorced parents and really appreciated how the author intertwined this into the story. It felt real and was not overdone or unbelievable. I am definitely buying this book for my classroom library and will be recommending to many of my students and fellow teachers.
