"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, Peac "Love ain't like that." "How is it then?" Peaches asked, turning on her stomach to face me. "It's like sky....

    ?Love Like Sky? by Leslie C. Youngblood is a children?s (and young adult?) book that gives a glimpse into the challenges of dealing with broken families and forming new ties. Young Georgie (G-baby) and Patrice (Peaches) are as close as two sisters can be, but they?re adjusting ...

    This is an incredibly sweet family story. It reads young--probably 3rd-6th grade--but this tells the story of such a beautiful, joyful, imperfect family, that you can't help but have all the feelings right along with them. G-baby and her little sister Peaches are trying to figure ou...

    Love Like Sky is a story about sisters. About the responsibility of having to be 'the big sister' and what that can do for you when your world has changed irreparably and you have to be the strong one. When you just want to be a kid for a change. To not have to be a role model. To not ...

    In the opening scene of LOVE LIKE SKY, G-baby is entertaining her younger sister Peaches by repeatedly dancing the "Nae Nae" and the "Dougie." I defy anyone to read this and not smile. I believe that would be impossible. LOVE LIKE SKY is set in the town of Snellville, Georgia, wher...

    I love the title of this book and the cover art for Love Like Sky is beautiful. The tag line reads: Families change. Love Grows. When the description tells me upfront a young child will be sick, I can pretty much guess it will be a tear jerker. And it was. I love the deep POV rev...

    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,...

    Love Like Sky is written perfectly for middle-school aged children. As the mother of both a 7 and a 9 year old, I?d be excited for my girls to read a story with flawed characters but boasts unbreakable bonds, love and resilience. I enjoyed this well-written work. I received an adv...

    I'm hoping that this author will write another one about G-baby and her blended up family. This book is more than adequate for middle schoolers or any adult. I am adding this author to my long list of favorite people. I can relate to G baby in some of the things that were mentioned...

    Ugh, what a cute and familial story! To start off with the negative, the writing was a little slow and hard to read but I could understand why it was like that. Plus, I had issues relating to the story as well. I didn?t really like the main character either, but she was a good one in...
