Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Same Sky is the timeliest book you will read this year—a wrenching, honest, painstakingly researched novel that puts a human face to the story of undocumented youth desperately seeking their dreams in America. This one’s going to haunt me for a long time—and it’s going to define the brilliant Amanda Eyre Ward as a leading author of socially conscious fiction.” Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of House Rules
“Eyre’s wrenching fifth novel is a study in contrasts between a middle-class woman in Texas and a young girl in Honduras…Poignant and bittersweet…Carla’s journey is powerfully rendered and will stick with readers long after they close the book.” Publishers Weekly
“This nuanced story about an eleven-year-old Honduran girl captures the fear—and incredible courage—that compels her to set out on a dangerous quest to find her mother in America.” BookPage
“Ward writes with great empathy; Carla’s narrative is particularly page-turning and awful, but it doesn’t make Alice’s problems any less resonant. Both stories ask questions about what it means to be a survivor. Large amounts of dramatic material nudge the novel toward the sentimental, but it’s pulled back by Ward’s narrative skill. The spare tone adds urgency to the pacing and suggests a steely reserve on each protagonist’s part. Earnest and well told. Heartstrings will be pulled.” Kirkus Reviews
“Riveting, heart-rending, and beautifully written, The Same Sky pulled me in on the first page and held my attention all the way to its perfect conclusion. I devoured this book.” Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan Train
