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."
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A novel of poetry, strung together beautifully to pull at the strings of your heart.
The moment that I finished reading this novel, I had died. Or at least it felt like I did.
I could only see the picture that David painted in my imagination,
I could only breathe the words that he had written.
It's like I was living in the world that he had created, standing there, an innocent bystander. A wallflower, watching the story unravel before my very eyes. And I couldn't look away. I wouldn't look away.
Between the Stars and Sky is a novel that everyone has to read. Everyone needs to experience the beauty of this story.
Beauty is all around us, we just need to open our eyes to see it. It seems David did just that, and then decided to put it to words. This story shows you the beauty in simple things, things that we tend to overlook.
David may write about stars, curses, and kisses. But now he also writes about star-filled eyes, losing/finding love, and underwear.
It's not often you find an author of the YA genre who is able to write well in the contemporary, David has shown us that he is a man of many talents.
For his first contemporary novel, it was, breathtaking!
This story will not only open your eyes, but your heart as well.
