Book: "Lifting the Sky" Author: Mackie D'Arge Pages: 310 Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Cover rating: 4.2 out of 5
12 year old Blue has never lived anywhere for more than three months since her Father ran away from her and her mother at the age of 4 saying that he was going out to buy some mustard. No, Blue and her Mom live together at different ranches in Wyoming. Her Mom always gets a job at being a ranch hand and so they always have living quarters. Blue dreams of living in a house in the mountains, peaceful and beautiful, and to stay much more permanently then what they were used to. She even draws a picture of her dream. Soon, her dream starts coming true when her Mom finds an add looking for a ranch hand at a ranch not far away from were they landed. Blue starts to get her hopes up as Mr. Mac, the owner, lets Blue and her mom stay in the big house that looks like the dream house she drew in her picture. However, it needs a few repairs and such, but maybe if she pulls it off, she will be able to convince her mom to stay. Thats not the only excitement that happens at the ranch though, Blue has a power of seeing 'lights' around her and other people, animals, and objects. At the ranch, the lights seem to get brighter and Blue learns how to use them to help others and her calf with the broken leg. A lot more adventures await in "Lifting The Sky" but I don't want to spoil the fun of reading about them!!
"Lifting the Sky" turned out different than what I thought it would be like. I didn't know that Blue would have powers in the story! Even so, I enjoyed it. It was clean, adventurous, and adventurous. Blue is a like able character! However, I did think the middle of the story was a little bit slow, but by the end it picked up into a nice pace again. Mackie D'Arge concluded the story nicely. Overall, it was a pretty enjoyable story except for it being a little slow in the middle!
I am constantly inspired by little things, the way ocean waves move, the change of emotion in horses eyes, a leaf blowing across the ground, colors of the prettiest shades, I love to find inspiration in everything! I am the proud Momma of two horses, Bailee and Figment and will be showing in junior Hunter jumping with Figment come next Summer! I hope you enjoy my blog and stop by again!
I would love to review your books! If you have a young adult book that you would like me to review, and post on my blog, feel free to send it! Please let me know if you are interested!
I am interested in YA books of almost all genres. If I happen to receive a book that I end up not liking (which I have to see isn't often), I will post a review on my blog and will either have a giveaway for it on my blog or donate it to my local library, otherwise I will save it to read again in the future when I might like it better.
