Summary: (from Tribute Books) 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.
Before I begin this review, I want to make everyone aware of Tribute Books. They publish eBooks for independent writers, mostly YA genre. This small little company has some great books that everyone should check out, including Jolene Perry's other works such as Knee Deep. So check them out today!!!
Night Sky is one of few books I have read in the male POV. Its takes a bit of getting used to when stories our told from the guy's side. So many YA or even adult books are purely female pov's and you get used to that, so I guess it is a bit refreshing to read it from the other side. That being said though, you connect with Jameson in Night Sky. Jolene wrote him so that he was very believable and easy to follow as a character. Jolene does a great job creating Jameson and showing us in words how he transforms or matures up. Pretty much every single character in Night Sky, is well written and balanced out with one another. They read like real people who you can possibly know in real life.
So we have Jameson, he is 18 years old and completely head over heals in love with Sarah. I think we all knew a boy or two that felt lie that for us in school. He has been for as long as he can remember. He is that guy that is soooo in love that he sort of acts like her personal puppy dog, he helps her with anything she might need or want. Their friendship is very strong but Jameson just looks on to the future and hopes any days now she will finally come around and becomes his. Ha! Not the easy folks. Sarah finds someone else and its definitely not Jameson. This crushes him so deep, his world pretty much feels like it ends. Now don't give up on poor Jameson, one day he runs into Sky. Sky intrigues him like Sarah never did. He will now face a battle of feelings between what he has always felt for Sarah and what is brewing inside now for the wild Sky. All this begins to take off during certain events in his life that he is deep in the middle off and will have to deal with as well.
If you are in a mood to read a coming of age story about love and life, then read Night Sky. Jolene's voice in Night Sky will warm everyone's heart. Now if your looking for a super intense non-stop action read then Night Sky is not for you, but I bet if you read it you'll be surprised how much you'll like it.
