By Suzanne and Melanie Brockmann
Review by Emily Neumann
Night Sky was an impeccable book about an 16-year-old girl who is shaken when Sasha, the girl she babysits, is kidnapped. She’s afraid that the nightmares she’s having about Sasha are true, even more frightened that Sasha’s already dead. Her confusions keep growing when a mystical girl with extreme butt-kicking abilities roars into town on a motorcycle and stalks Skylar. Things get even weirder when super girl Dana tells Sky that she also has these breath-taking abilities. Dana and her partner in crime, Milo, wish for Skylar to join them in their mission and mold Sky into the ultimate weapon. Sky senses that there is some important secret that they’re keeping from her, but reluctantly follows them to save Sasha and fight Destiny.
Night Sky was an exhilarating and spectacular book that was full of so much adventure and detail that I could never set the book down. They write in a heart-stopping way that always twists and turns and makes you feel like you are in the story. For example, when Skylar, Calvin, Milo, and Dana stumble into an enormous person with a baseball bat, Suzanne and Melanie describe their fear so sufficiently, that I couldn’t help but quiver along with them. Your heart beats faster and faster as Skylar and Calvin escape many near-death experiences. Suzanne and Melanie manage to pull off a stunning fiction story of love and destiny that everyone will adore. I highly recommend this book and series to kids 14 and older who enjoy adventure and romance stories.
