"Love ain't like that.""How is it then?" Peaches asked, turning on her stomach to face me."It's like sky. If you keep driving and driving, gas will run out, right?""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, Peache...

Georgiana (frequently called G-Baby or Georgie) is fairly comfortable with her blended family. They have moved out from the Atlanta metropolitan area to a smaller town, and Georgie gets along well with her stepfather. Her older step-sister, Tangie, is very interesting, but has little time for her new sibling. Georgie, however, is quite nice to her annoying younger sister, Peaches. When the girls return to the city to visit their father and his new wife Millicent (whom they cal ...more
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 in this book. Like moving to a new state new school and making new friends and somewhere along the line wwith a step mother as well but this didn't happen to me until 1998 after I was old enough and my real mom passed a ...more
So first of all, the sentiment: a love like the sky, which never ends. I'm crying already.
Next, the cover: Georgie- a young girl with such a serious almost sad look in her eyes, the title written in strips of sky floating around her; her shadow which subtly shows the bond Georgie has with her little sister Peaches...Ugh! The cover is so good! I just adore Vashti Harrison's art!
Finally, the book itself: a realistic, heartfelt portrayal of a modern middle schooler- family strife, divorce ...more
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

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 found myself identifying with this very accurate portrayal of ...more
This is a sweet book that allows young readers to grapple with some of the bigger life issues kids experience in today's world, along with a very realistic look at the modern family. Thanks for sending an ARC my way for review, Disney Books!
A sweet summer coming-of-age story—a little family drama, a little adventure, a little friendship struggle, and a little crush, all combining to make a lovely read.
This is a sweet story about Georgie or G-baby, and her life at 11 years-old. She has a lot going on in her little head about her newly blended family, friends at school, her best friend, and a boy down the street. But when her little sister gets deathly sick and has to go stay in the hospital she realizes just how much her little sister means to her.
This is a lovely family story about very relatable events for a child. Relationships in blended families are so hard to navigate and when a loved on ...more
After G-Baby's mother remarries, she and her sister Peaches are uprooted from their home and friends when they move in with their new step-dad. G-Baby has trouble blending in to this new extended family and misses her former neighborhood and friends. When tragedy strikes her family, everyone pulls together and G-Baby realizes what's really important.
I found this book to be rather slow-paced and the main character was a tad bit annoying but it also had a pertinent message about dealing with blend ...more
