What. A. Ride.This is what YA literature should be. Skyward is deeply meaningful and deals with the pains of growing up in a well-written, beautifully conceived and executed story. Spensa goes through everything we do, but magnified a thousand fold by her situation. A masterful piece of literature and a thrilling story. I eagerly wait for Starsight in fall 2019.This book is a must read for young adults and anyone who enjoys, or wants to read, an excellent growing up story.Sanderson has created a hero’s journey in which the hero, the mentor, and the companions are all more human and more relatable than ever before, they speak to our darkest fears and our deepest dreams. In so many ways this story has asked, what does it really mean to be a hero, and each character has a different, equally meaningful answer.Read it for yourself, and Claim the Stars.
