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)… (mer)

teen romance during a hurricane.
narration was ok, but the boy character was so annoyingly jerky that I didn't care to find out what his redeeming qualities were. ( )

Decent YA novel dealing with loss & love using a pair of teens stranded in a hurricane. I thought that the hurricane aspect of the story was excellent - the YA aspect was fairly typical to my mind. ( )

I can see why this one would be hit or miss for people. I am giving it a three stars, as it was ok. It kept my attention and was fast paced. It was a very exaggerated look into two teens stuck in a storm/hurricane. Some of the things they do along the way were so annoying and unrealistic. I just found myself rolling my eyes at certain things that happened.

Both Sophie and Finn have back stories that kept the story interesting. I wanted to know more about what previously happened in their lives even more than what happened during the storm. Finn makes some ridiculous decisions along the way and I just never really liked him.

Overall, this was ok but not something I would be recommending to many others. ( )

Sophie's life changed when her Dad and sister were in an auto accident. Her severely injured sister suffered a stroke during recovery and can do few things she used to find enjoyable. Her dad walked out leaving her mom to mind the family business and both daughters.

Before that Finn stood her up and left town. Now Finn is back, and a hurricane is headed their way. Sophie and her mom heed the mandatory evacuation, but Sophie's bald tire blows out on the highway before leaving the Outer Banks. Finn comes along, offering her a lift, but he needs to take supplies to an uncle who plans to ride out the storm in spite of the mandatory evacuation first. Finn also takes the opportunity to do a little surfing on oncoming hurricane waves. When they finally hit the road to get off the island, the winds are already high. A branch blows through the windshield, and the truck wrecks. The two teens find themselves in a game of survivor.

Woven into the narrative is the story of a wild horse who got away from the rest of the horses and became injured, and Sophie's efforts to help him.

This AudioSync Summer 2019 selection has all the elements of a good summer read for teen girls. Narrator Morgan Fairbanks did a good job portraying Sophie. ( )
