Girl I’ve loved, girl I’m falling for. Now that they’re both in view, the problem is clear. 

After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her.

As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums - she's way more than distraction. Jameson's falling for her fast.

But Sky’s need for honesty somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.

“Like I’m flying through the night sky because I have no idea what the hell I’m doing, but I can’t get enough of you.”~Jameson (Jay)

Wow, Night Sky by Jolene B. Perry has stolen my heart! This book was an incredible story of love, lost, struggle, and life.

Night Sky is through the eyes of Jameson (Jay). Jameson has been in love with his best friend Sarah for years. And now that Sarah is with probably the biggest jerk in school, Jay has had enough. As he struggles to get over his broken heart he meets Sky, she is completely the opposite of Sarah, Sky tells Jay what she thinks, and is completely honest with him…the more time he spends with Sky the more he realizes maybe Sarah was never the girl he thought she was…but as Jay falls more and more for Sky, he can’t help, but feel she is keeping something from him..something big.

Night Sky was such a refreshing read from beginning to end, I have been reading so many paranormal/dystopian novels that to pick up a contemporary novel that kept my attention as much as Night Sky did was incredible. I adored this novel, I am not one that reads contemporary novels often, for me contemporary novels have to be amazing for me to enjoy them as much as a paranormal/or dystopian novel, and Night Sky was just that AMAZING, Jolene has put together a beautiful and heart breaking novel of love that I could not get enough of.

My favorite part of Night Sky hands down was Sky. She was so unique, I loved how brutally honest she would be to Jay and how understanding she was. She knew Jay was still confused about his feelings for Sarah, and instead of being whiney and all depressed like most girls in YA books would be she just gave him his time and was understanding. Not once did she ever throw a fit. I also loved hearing about her Native American roots, I love Native American culture, and after reading Night Sky that has a girl that is Native American, it made me realize how much I wish more YA books would use other heritages in their novels. Most YA novels don’t go outside of American culture, and it really is a shame.

Another part of Night Sky I loved was the writing, I devoured Night Sky! Jolene’s writing was absolutely astonishing! I started Night Sky Wednesday night and kept reading until I finished it really early Thursday morning, I could not put it down! When I finished Night Sky I couldn’t believe I had been sitting there for hours without even noticing, Jolene’s writing flowed so nicely I didn’t even notice I was flowing straight through the whole book. I normally would have to force myself to finish a book in one sitting, but yet with Night Sky I did it without even a pause or realizing I was flowing straight threw!

If you’re looking for a novel that you won’t be able to put down, has unique characters and is a marvelous story of love and struggle, then Night Sky is a novel you must pick and enjoy!

Great review! I also found this a refreshing alternative to all the fantasy/dystopian I've been caught up in lately, especially considering I rarely read contemporary. But where you chose Sky as your favourite, I had to choose Jameson - he stole my heart!
