Sky’s small town turns absolutely claustrophobic when his secret promposal plans get leaked to the entire school in this witty, heartfelt, and ultimately hopeful debut novel for fans of What if it’s Us? and I Wish You All the Best. Sky Baker may be openly gay, but in his small, insular town, making sure he was invisible has always been easier than being himself. Determined not to let anything ruin his senior year, Sky decides to make a splash at his high school’s annual beach bum party by asking his crush, Ali, to prom—and he has thirty days to do it. What better way to start living loud and proud than by pulling off the gayest promposal that Rock Ledge, Michigan, has ever seen? Then Sky’s plans are leaked by an anonymous hacker in a deeply homophobic e-blast that quickly goes viral. He’s fully prepared to drop out and skip town altogether—until his classmates give him a reason to fight back by turning his thirty-day promposal countdown into a school-wide hunt to expose the e-blast perpetrator. But what happens at the end of the thirty days? Will Sky get to keep his hard-won visibility? Or will his small-town blues stop him from being his true self?

What better way to start living loud and proud than by pulling off the gayest promposal that Rock Ledge, Michigan, has ever seen?

Then Sky’s plans are leaked by an anonymous hacker in a deeply homophobic e-blast that quickly goes viral. He’s fully prepared to drop out and skip town altogether—until his classmates give him a reason to fight back by turning his thirty-day promposal countdown into a school-wide hunt to expose the e-blast perpetrator.

But what happens at the end of the thirty days? Will Sky get to keep his hard-won visibility? Or will his small-town blues stop him from being his true self?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An optimistic…coming-of-age narrative.” Kirkus Reviews
“The Sky Blues is the first book I’ve read that so fully encapsulates the dynamics of growing up queer during adolescence, without falling into the usual dramatic tropes—it’s a perfect snapshot…This book will help them navigate life’s challenges, while teaching them how to celebrate their wonderful differences.” Kevin McHale, actor
“Packed with twists, turns, and a whole lotta love, The Sky Blues tugged at my gay-from-the-Midwest heartstrings.” Tyler Oakley, New York Times bestselling author
