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)

Opinion

From Library Staff

Having read Misty of Chincoteague many times as a kid, I found the secondary plot of this story--the wild horses of North Carolina's Outer Banks--the initial draw. But the devastating storm that Sophie and Finn struggle to survive through became the plot point that had me continuing to read. Sugg... Read More »
