BETWEEN THE STARS AND SKY is a vivid contemporary novel from Young Adult author David James. Lyrical and romantic, BETWEEN THE STARS AND SKY is a heart-stopping, contemporary read for fans of Maggie Stiefvater and David Levithan.
SYNOPSIS: "In the small, lakeside town of Huntington, the Firelight Festival marks the end of summer. A time to laugh, to live, to love. And for Jackson Grant, it is a chance to begin again.
But there is a darker side to the Firelight Festival, a deadly tradition known as the Firelight Fall. A secret game. A legendary lie. A test of bravery. Those who fall risk everything, and Jackson is on the edge. Until he meets a girl who pushes him over.
For Jackson, falling for Sarah Blake might be as dangerous as jumping in the Firelight Fall. As summer burns away, Jackson and Sarah ignite an unstoppable love game. For her, his heart is on fire. And soon, Sarah shows him life, saves him from loss, and opens his heart to an infinite and wild love found between the stars and sky."
Between The Stars and Sky by David James is a story of learning to love and letting go. I found myself getting lost in the emotional journey presented and once finished, I felt empty and lost in the best possible way. The lyrical depth bursting from the pages melted reality away for a short time, creating the perfect afternoon escape.
Within the story lies mini stories, humor, learning, and Christmas lights. Christmas lights? Yep. Read it, you’ll get it. The stories told by Jackson Grant are one of my favorite elements in this story. But my absolute favorite, the ending. So, on that note, my review must end.
I encourage you, get this book. You won't be disappointed. It's a quick read, but it's one that sticks with you.
