Have you ever felt trapped and as though you were falling through the cracks of life? Then you will definitely feel a connection to Izzy, the protagonist in Amy Beashel’s “The Sky Is Mine.”
Izzy feels invisible. Trapped under the weight of expectation and censored by shame.
Her mum Steph and best friend Grace have always been there to save her. But with one under the control of her stepfather and the other caught in the throes of new love, Izzy is falling between the cracks.
As threats to her safety grow, Izzy wants to scream. But first she must find her voice.
And if the sky is the limit, then the sky is hers.
There are some books that stay with you long after you’ve read them and this one of those. Amy deals with the highly sensitive subject matter (Trigger warning for Domestic Abuse and Rape) with tact and sensitivity, that makes The Sky Is Mine a profoundly powerful read.
Izzy is such a strong character who is given a clear voice that gets louder and more powerful as the story unfolds. If fictional characters can be heroes then Izzy is one who deserves to be on the list.
The Sky Is Mine is a book that needs to be added your To Read Pile!
