Description

From award-winning author McCall Hoyle comes a new young adult novel, Meet the Sky, a story of love, letting go, and the unstoppable power of nature. It all started with the accident. The one that caused Sophie's dad to walk out of her life. The one that left Sophie's older sister, Meredith, barely able to walk at all. With nothing but pain in her past, all Sophie wants is to plan for the future-keep the family business running, get accepted to veterinary school, and protect her mom and sister from another disaster. But when a hurricane forms off the coast of North Carolina's Outer Banks and heads right toward their island, Sophie realizes nature is one thing she can't control. After she gets separated from her family during the evacuation, Sophie finds herself trapped on the island with the last person she'd have chosen-the reckless and wild Finn Sanders, who broke her heart freshman year. As they struggle to find safety, Sophie learns that Finn has suffered his own heartbreak; but instead of playing it safe, Finn's become the kind of guy who goes surfing in the eye of the hurricane. He may be the perfect person to remind Sophie how to embrace life again, but only if their newfound friendship can survive the storm. Praise for McCall Hoyle's debut novel, The Thing with Feathers: "Beautiful, touching, and bursting with hope." Pintip Dunn, award-winning and New York Times bestselling author "Heartfelt and affecting. Hoyle tells a familiar story, but does so in a voice that is rarely heard, and that makes all the difference." Leah Thomas, William C. Morris Award finalist and author of Because You'll Never Meet Me and Nowhere Near You "The inspiring story of one girl's struggle not to be defined by her illness, The Thing with Feathers soars as it explores what it means to live-and love-without fear." Kathryn Holmes, author of How It Feels to Fly "A refreshing, quality debut-meaningfully woven and beautifully engaging, from the first page to the last." YA Books Central (5 stars)

Professional reviews

"This audiobook hurls listeners into the heart of a hurricane. Morgan Fairbanks narrates Sophie March's struggle to survive a hurricane in her Outer Banks, North Carolina, home with help from her former crush, Finn. Sophie is no stranger to hard times; it hasn't been long since the car accident that left her sister with brain damage and sent her guilt-racked father packing. Finn too has suffered tragedy, but in him it has instilled JOIE DE VIVRE. Fairbanks voices Sophie with quiet solemnity and Finn with an irresistible playful drawl. Each chapter begins with a quote from the poet Tennyson, lending moments of contemplation to the action-packed story. S.P. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
