LOVE LIKE SKY by Leslie C. Youngblood (MG)
This is another book that I’m just setting down long enough to post about it, then going right back to reading. It is moving and real.
I was immediately drawn to G-baby (Georgie), the main character, who is trying so hard to get used to being part of a “blended-up” family. She’s torn between a little sister, Peaches, who needs more reassurance than G-baby can give and an older step-sister, Tangie, who can’t stand her. G-baby is desperate to get Tangie to like her. Then Peaches becomes seriously ill.
And that’s the point where I set down the book long enough to post this and urge you to read it, too. Here are a couple of links to tell you more about the book, which was just published in November 2018.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to find out what’s going to happen to Peaches.
