Giveaway and Review: Night Sky by Jolene Perry

One of the easiest ways to get over someone is to find someone new, but what happens if you can’t trust that relationship either?

Jameson’s a senior in high school and should be carefree, but Night Sky opens with his secret love/best friend taking their school’s football star to their prom. On his way home from this heartbreaking night, Jameson picks up a stranded girl from the side of the road. Beautiful and intriguing, Sky almost instantly helps Jameson feel a little better, especially when they realize that they live right by each other.

As the relationship between Sky and Jameson begins to heat up, things with his parents start to cool down. Arguments and strange, distant behavior lead to Jameson’s dad leaving their family for another woman. Then, while Sky has always demanded complete honesty from Jameson, he finds that she has not been as forthcoming.

Jameson was such a nice break from a female main character. I love my strong girls and all, but guys in real life are generally much chiller than a lot of chicks and that seems to follow through into literature as well. Even though relationships around him are falling apart, Jameson isn’t over angsty or a bad boy.

Instead of the bad boy, we get the bad girl: Sky. Gorgeous and mysterious, Sky provides the perfect diversion and the right amount of sympathy as Jameson deals with Sarah and his parents.

I knew I would really enjoy Night Sky while I was reading the first page–and I did. Like her character Jameson, Perry’s writing is relaxed and to-the-point, without an overload of descriptions. But even though she is not overly verbose, all of the characters are fully developed and you feel for Jameson throughout the story.

About Night Sky

After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her.

As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums – she’s way more than distraction. Jameson’s falling for her fast.

But Sky’s need for honestly somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.
