Description

I borrow the car again from Grandma and drive out to my hill. I scream I am a big fat zero, plus I am swearing off kissing forever, and I hate being a secret sex fiend, about sixteen times each. Then I sit very still and watch a hawk swirl over the fields. I have to get a new life before I go crazy. Sixteen-year-old Morgan lives in a hick town. Her mum was killed in a car accident when she was two, her dad drinks, and her stepmother is a non-entity. Her boyfriend Derek is boring and she can't stop staring at her co-worker Rob's cute butt. Then there's the kiss she shared with her neighbor Tessa. But when Morgan discovers a devastating secret about the one person she completely trusted, her entire world crashes and she must redefine her life and herself. Compelling and complex, "The Sky Always Hears Me" is a fast-paced narrative with raw humour and a heart-wrenching twist.show more

Review quote

"Written with candor and splashes of humor...this provocative story captures the essence of adolescent ennui and uncertainty through an uncensored first-person narrative. Stubborn, quick-witted and determined to make her dreams come true, Morgan will draw sympathy from readers."--Publishers Weekly "Morgan is a well-drawn character and her funny, frank, profane-but-literate first-person voice rings true and strong-teens might find it liberating to meet a character who can take on life's messiness and forgive it."--Kirkus Reviews "Cronn-Mills does a great job of getting into the head of a teenager. The dialog fits and the drama is clearly evident.--Midwest Mixshow more
