Book Review: Finding Sky By Joss Stirling


Name: Finding Sky
Author: Joss Stirling
Publisher: Oxford
Release Date: Out now

Summary: When Sky catches a glimpse of Zed for the first time, lounging against his motorbike at school, she is drawn to him just like every other girl in Wickenridge. But Zed sees something special in her that the other girls don't have. Zed tells her they are both Savants - people with special powers like telepathy and the ability to see into the future. Not only that, she is a Savant too, and his soulfinder - meant to be together.


Review: So I had no idea what to expect when picking up this novel. I hadn't heard about it before until the awesome people as Oxford Publishers sent me a copy. And I am glad they did.

From the first page of this novel you could tell that this was going to be haunting, exciting and sad.
I think from the beginning of this book teenage girls from the UK and other countries that have to live someone new could defiantly relate to Sky. Its really comical when reading some of the stero types Americans have for the Brits and the same with the Brits for the Americans.

The characters are awesome. Seven hot bad boy brothers Trace, Uriel, Victor, Will, Xavier, Yves and Zed. They attend Wrickenridge with Sky. Joss has definantly written them as individuals and non of them act the same which I think was really important when trying to remember the boys. Also the use of the UK and the USA in this novel is very believable. I really enjoyed the banter between Sky and her American friend Tina. The stereotypes they had for each other was a really enjoyable read.

Zed and Skys relationship. The sexual tension has hit the roof between them two. Zeds character is very loveable as well as annoying. He's one of those characters you find sometimes annoying but can't help but love. Them two were both a really enjoyable read.The plot is nothing like I have come across what the seven brothers are hiding I never saw coming. Finding Sky is a really refreshing read with loads of awesome twists and turns! Epic.

I have tried to find a copy of this at BN, Amazon, and Sony (for the Nook-although I'd be willing to buy a book if I had, I prefer Digital). Do you know if it is available in the US? It sounds right up my alley but I can't find it anywhere!

I saw this book in my schools library and read the blurb. It seemed like the sort of book I would read so I checked it out and trust me I am so happy I did. When reading it I ended up completely wrapped up in the story. In the first chapter or so I thought of Zed as a little arrogant but then his character changed around sky and I found it really cool. Definitely recommend reading it.
