    I listened to this on audio and after adjusting to the narrator?s voice, this one was good! It had everything I look for in YA, but was a little too drawn out for my liking? I just don?t think I expected the entire book to take place in the span of 2-3 days, so I got a little bor...

    Meet The Sky is one part adventure survival story, one part romance and one part story of self-discovery. It?s about learning to survive and, in the face of life?s storms, learning to live. Sophie likes things under control. It?s the only way she can continue to function now t...

    I found this YA contemporary survival adventure story pretty exciting and hard to put down. Sophie and Finn become stuck on their North Carolina island in a hurricane after being unable to evacuate and they have to try to survive together. Finn has just returned to town after years...

    You know I like to start by telling you the star rating so I'm going to give this one 4.5 stars. The only thing keeping this back from a full five stars is Sophie was a little annoying for me, too timid, too cautious, too rude and assumes everything really is about her when there's a w...

    Wow. McCall Hoyle has crafted yet another deep & deeply moving story embedded in a high school romance, this time with a hurricane disaster wrapped around it. As in her fantastic debut novel, THE THING WITH FEATHERS, author Hoyle weaves classic poetry (Tennyson in this one) into he...

    Good book, well written with an alright «plot», but I just find it too girly for my personal preference. It?s a fun summer read for teenage girls. Personal appreciation 2/5, potential 3,5/5 or even 4/5. So I will go with a fair 3/5 official rating. ...

    This was a good (albeit somewhat unbelievable) story about two kids who survive a hurricane. The actual survival is what is called into question when it comes to reality. But the focus of the book is relationships and surviving grief and loss. In that respect, it did it's job with an e...

    4/5 Stars! Hoyle?s endearing second novel took me by surprise and drew me in. Sophie is having a rough time in more ways than one, and I enjoyed her goal-oriented mindset. Obsessed with her families horses and animals in general, she does everything in her power to help them. Hor...

    Why not more? I'm asking myself that, too. I loved the setting of this book (I might have an unhealthy obsession with natural disasters) and I loved Sophie's backstory. And all the animals! Also, I loved the message behind the book, the distinction between chronos and kairos and about ...

    One of my favorite things about Hoyle's debut novel, The Thing with Feathers (my review here)was the way she used Emily Dickinson's poetry throughout the book. Which means one of my favorite parts of Meet the Sky was the way she used the Tennyson quotes at the beginning of each chapter...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars When I requested this book, I had not heard any buzz, nor was I familiar with the author, but BOY am I glad I took a chance, because it was so wonderful! Both Sophie and Finn had suffered great losses, but they reacted in very different ways. Finn decided to liv...
