Book Excerpt :

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Wall Street Journal • NPR • New York Public Library • LitHub • Mental Floss “Influenced by the likes of Jane Austen and Rick and Morty, Smith tackles timely issues while leaving room for some delicious reality TV references.”—Entertainment Weekly In the burned-out, futuristic city of Empire Island, three young people navigate a crumbling metropolis constantly under threat from a pair of dragons that circle the skies. When violence strikes, reality star Duncan Humphrey Ripple V, the spoiled scion of the metropolis’ last dynasty; Baroness Swan Lenore Dahlberg, his tempestuous, death-obsessed betrothed; and Abby, a feral beauty he discovered tossed out with the trash, are forced to flee everything they've ever known. As they wander toward the scalded heart of the city, they face fire, conspiracy, mayhem, unholy drugs, dragon-worshippers, and the monsters lurking inside themselves. In this bombshell of a novel, Chandler Klang Smith has imagined an unimaginable world: scathingly clever and gorgeously strange, The Sky Is Yours is at once faraway and disturbingly familiar, its singular chaos grounded in the universal realities of love, family, and the deeply human desire to survive at all costs. Praise for The Sky is Yours “It’s a mesmeric world, comic in the way teenage voyages of self-discovery inevitably are, but with an undertone of menace, horror, even hints of allegory. Satire, too . . . Smith’s imagination is inexhaustible. The Sky Is Yours is a great and disturbing debut, which colonizes a new realm of the magic city.”—The Wall Street Journal “Smith’s gifts of imagination are staggering. . . . Much like Lev Grossman’s The Magicians and Charlie Jane Anders’s All the Birds in the Sky before it, The Sky is Yours filters youth through a warped yet poignantly canny speculative fiction lens. At the same time, it’s funny as hell, full of madcap detail, firecracker dialogue, and a healthy dose of absurdism in the face of darkness.”—NPR “Readers who love ambitious literary genre fiction should be on the lookout for Smith’s first novel, a vibrantly uncanny dystopia set on an island metropolis, in the shadow of dragons that swoop overhead, where income inequality and mass incarceration have spun out of control.”—HuffPost “An unmissable masterpiece.”—PopSugar

Book Short Summary:

On a steamy summer day in 1977, Emanuel Jaques was shining shoes in downtown Toronto. Surrounded by the strip clubs, bars and body rub parlors of Yonge Street, Emanuel was lured away from his friends by a man who promised some easy money. Four days later the boy's body was discovered. He had been brutally raped and murdered, and Toronto the Good would never be the same. The murder of the Shoeshine Boy had particularly tragic resonance for the city's Portuguese community. The loss of one of their own symbolized for many how far they were from realizing their immigrant dreams. Kicking the Sky is told from the perspective of one of these children, Antonio Rebelo, a character first introduced in Barnacle Love. Twelve-year-old Antonio prizes his life of freedom and adventure. He and his best friends, Manny and Ricky, spend their days on their bikes exploring the labyrinth of laneways that link their Portuguese neighborhood to the rest of the city. But as the details of Emanuel's death expose Toronto's seedier underbelly, the boys are pulled into an adult world of danger and cruelty, secrets and lies much closer to home. Kicking the Sky is a novel driven by dramatic events, taking hold of readers from its opening pages, intensifying its force towards an ending of huge emotional impact.

There were no stars there, though points of light were clustered around the edges, apparently retreating.

A gripping new read from Erin Bow, acclaimed and bestselling author of Plain Kate and The Scorpion Rules! Aisulu is a Kazakh nomad girl living in Mongolia. She has always been a bit different — she likes girl things well enough and milks the yaks and fetches water as a daughter should, but she also likes math and a fast ride on her horse, Moon Spot, which she tamed herself. But when her brother Selik breaks his leg trying to catch an eagle, and is discovered to have osteosarcoma, everything changes! While her parents rush off to the city with her brother, Aisulu moves in with her aunt and her uncle, a former Burkitshi (eagle hunger). Seeing her attachment to a rescued eaglet, her uncle begins training Aisulu to become an eagle hunter herself, even though she is a girl, and girls do not become eagle hunters. Aisulu is not sure she can do it — but when she finds out that there will be a Festival in town with a prize that could help buy her brother an expensive prosthetic leg, she knows she has to try! The odds are stacked against her, but Aisulu is determined to prove herself and help her family.

Book Short Summary:

From award-winning author McCall Hoyle comes a new young adult novel, Meet the Sky, a story of love, letting go, and the unstoppable power of nature. It all started with the accident. The one that caused Sophie’s dad to walk out of her life. The one that left Sophie’s older sister, Meredith, barely able to walk at all. With nothing but pain in her past, all Sophie wants is to plan for the future—keep the family business running, get accepted to veterinary school, and protect her mom and sister from another disaster. But when a hurricane forms off the coast of North Carolina’s Outer Banks and heads right toward their island, Sophie realizes nature is one thing she can’t control. After she gets separated from her family during the evacuation, Sophie finds herself trapped on the island with the last person she’d have chosen—the reckless and wild Finn Sanders, who broke her heart freshman year. As they struggle to find safety, Sophie learns that Finn has suffered his own heartbreak; but instead of playing it safe, Finn’s become the kind of guy who goes surfing in the eye of the hurricane. He may be the perfect person to remind Sophie how to embrace life again, but only if their newfound friendship can survive the storm. Praise for McCall Hoyle’s debut novel, The Thing with Feathers: “Beautiful, touching, and bursting with hope.” Pintip Dunn, award-winning and New York Times bestselling author “Heartfelt and affecting. Hoyle tells a familiar story, but does so in a voice that is rarely heard, and that makes all the difference.” Leah Thomas, William C. Morris Award finalist and author of Because You’ll Never Meet Me and Nowhere Near You “The inspiring story of one girl’s struggle not to be defined by her illness, The Thing with Feathers soars as it explores what it means to live—and love—without fear.” Kathryn Holmes, author of How It Feels to Fly “A refreshing, quality debut—meaningfully woven and beautifully engaging, from the first page to the last.” YA Books Central (5 stars)

Book Short Summary:

In the magical time between night and day, when both the sun and the moon are in the sky, a child is born in a little blue house on a hill. And Miu Lan is not just any child, but one who can change into any shape they can imagine. The only problem is they can't decide what to be: A boy or a girl? A bird or a fish? A flower or a shooting star? At school, though, they must endure inquisitive looks and difficult questions from the other children, and they have trouble finding friends who will accept them for who they are. But they find comfort in the loving arms of their mother, who always offers them the same loving refrain: "whatever you dream of / i believe you can be / from the stars in the sky to the fish in the sea." In this captivating, beautifully imagined picture book about gender, identity, and the acceptance of the differences between us, Miu Lan faces many questions about who they are and who they may be. But one thing's for sure: no matter what this child becomes, their mother will love them just the same. Kai Cheng Thom is a writer, performance artist, and psychotherapist in Toronto. Her first poetry book, a Place Called No Homeland, was published in 2017. Kai Yun Ching is a community-based organizer, educator, and illustrator in Montreal.

A valuable concept that can change how we think of any fellow earth dwelling creature be it on earth or in the sea." --The Reading Ninja "The story moves in a poetic ebb and flow of an ocean current, and is well balanced by the very colorful illustrations." --Inspire the Muse "A beautifully rhymed and painted book that is almost philosophically asking about the being and existence of otherness. Proved and tested with my two-year-old, who became very tranquil and curious looking at the beautiful seascape." --The Manolist "This is a gorgeously illustrated view of the world by a shark." --The Cyberlibrarian "A beautifully illustrated book that is a magical and compelling read!" --MyShelf "Enchanting. You feel like you're in the water swimming with the other fish...The images alone are worth the price of the book." --Journey of a Bookseller A shark, swimming the seas, encounters...Aliens.

Cortés's stunning seascapes follow the adventures of a shark that has a story to share about creatures who live above the ocean. Our shark encounters strange-looking creatures who resemble nice, caring marine biologists. But after they release it back into the ocean, the shark cannot find one friend to believe its tale. Filled with humor and warmth, Sea Creatures from the Sky will charm children and parents alike.

Book Short Summary:

Tim Winton's That Eye, the Sky is a tale about a boy’s vision of the world beyond, and the blurry distinctions between the natural and supernatural. At twelve years old, Morton – Ort for short – is not quite a child, but not yet an adult; his isolated outback world is an intriguing combination of boyish innocence, adolescent confusion and burgeoning awareness. When his father is seriously injured in a car crash, however, that world is suddenly thrown into complete disarray and the whole family have to adjust. As Ort, his sister, mother and grandmother are struggling to come to terms with what has happened, a stranger appears in their midst. Preaching God’s word, Henry Warburton’s unexpected arrival seems eerily prescient, at a time when the family most need a helping hand, and Henry quickly makes himself indispensable. In fact, for Ort in particular, it is Henry’s presence, perhaps more even than his father’s accident, that brings the greatest change to his world. ‘The great strength of the novel is in the way the grotesque contrasts and parallels in human life are spread out, examined and accepted.’ – Los Angeles Times

Book Short Summary:

Another Earth meets Perks of Being a Wallflower in this thoughtful, mesemerizing debut and subject of a TedX talk about the discovery of a mirror planet to Earth and how it dramatically changes the course of one Indian-American girl's junior year. “[O]ne of the most powerful reads of the year. A novel about family, race, and discovering who you are, Mirror in the Sky promises a unique read that blends YA contemporary struggles with imaginative science fiction." —Paste Magazine For Tara Krishnan, navigating Brierly, the academically rigorous prep school she attends on scholarship, feels overwhelming and impossible. Her junior year begins in the wake of a startling discovery: A message from an alternate Earth, light years away, is intercepted by NASA. This means that on another planet, there is another version of Tara, a Tara who could be living better, burning brighter, because of tiny differences in her choices. The world lights up with the knowledge of Terra Nova, the mirror planet, and Tara’s life on Earth begins to change. At first, small shifts happen, like attention from Nick Osterman, the most popular guy at Brierly, and her mother playing hooky from work to watch the news all day. But eventually those small shifts swell, the discovery of Terra Nova like a black hole, bending all the light around it. As a new era of scientific history dawns and Tara's life at Brierly continues its orbit, only one thing is clear: Nothing on Earth--or for Tara--will ever be the same again.

Book Short Summary:

A work of fiction drawn from true events, When the Sky Was No Longer Blue is a shattering account of three generations' response to one of humanity’s most devastating crimes, a tale of unspeakable terror that culminates in a universal message and an important call for prevention. The past bleeds into the present for Jeet, a survivor of a brutal genocide who, decades later, is still tormented by it regularly. It is a past from which injustice still bellows, a past in which human rights and humanity were deeply buried, a past more terrible than most of us could contemplate. Through her enduring nightmares and memories, we embark on a journey of survival with Jeet, who is now a grandmother spending the summer with her beloved grandchildren, Rinny and Raj. Over its course, the teenagers come face to face with their grandmother’s truth and the family history she’s kept hidden from them. Jeet decides to share her experience only after much tortured contemplation, shedding her long-held conviction that shielding future generations from the cruelty was best. With this choice, Jeet reconciles with her past, and Rinny and Raj help her to heal. Along the way, they delve into the topic of genocides and preventing mass atrocities against humanity.

Book Short Summary:

Warning: Big Sky is DARK literary erotica meant for an emotionally mature, adult audience. This work is not romance. Nor is it "50 Shades". Do not expect an HEA. If you are familiar with this author's work and enjoyed Comfort Food, you may also enjoy this title. If you are unfamiliar with this author, you might first want to try some of her tamer/lighter works such as Blood Mate or Mafia Captive to see if her style might be for you. Big Sky is a work of fiction and neither the author nor the publisher condone the behavior of any characters in real life. Description: Veronica Cason lives in a small apartment with no clear view of the sky. It's uncertain which might crush her first: her debt or the buildings squeezed in so tight that they surround her like ominous sentinels. She can't breathe in the city. Her success is a lie, and her debt is coming to collect her--unless someone else gets there first. When a stranger offers her a job at a ranch, it feels like salvation, but it could also mean her death if his motives aren't pure. Which door has the tiger behind it? The claustrophobia of the city or ranch life under an open sky? What Readers are Saying about Big Sky: "Kitty Thomas writes amazing dark erotica, so what, you ask, did I learn about myself from reading her latest book? I learned that I must be getting jaded and I am a sucker for a grieving man." -JillyP "Preface to say that this is dark edgy erotica, not for those looking for pure romance. But if this is your genre, then Big SKy is a must read. Well-crafted story with complex characters. I am hooked on Kitty Thomas!" -K. Victoria Smith "Big Sky was a good dark erotic story by Kitty Thomas and I think one of the darkest ones that she has written. I highly recommend Big Sky to all fans of dark erotica." -AsianCocoa "Kitty writes fictional stories that are dark erotica, so going into this novel I knew what to expect. While this book definitely has some dark and twisted things happening in it that I don't personally agree with, I couldn't help but justify everything that happened. In a lot of ways, I felt that Luke really was saving Veronica and giving her a do-over. Only Kitty Thomas can take something so morally wrong and make it seem right." -KC Book Girl "If you are a Kitty Thomas fan, this is a must-read. If you've never read Kitty Thomas before, and you think you can handle reading dark erotica, don't start here. Go read Comfort Food, and if you love it, come back and read Big Sky. It's perfect." Amazon Customer "This is one of the strangest erotic novels I have ever read, and trust me, that is really saying something. I don't even know how to describe the book. I guess it's best described as a dark erotic novel, but that just doesn't seem quite enough." - Charles M Smith II "Kitty Thomas had done it again. She's ensnared me in her web of dark and disquieting words. The dark subject matter of BIG SKY rivals that of COMFORT FOOD (a book that still haunts my thoughts years after reading). Let's just say that the antagonist/hero in BIG SKY makes Master from COMFORT FOOD seem like a well-adjusted individual. ;-) And, yes, in Kitty's world, the hero and antagonist are usually the same person." -Book of Secrets "The writing was brilliant and I loved how the author went there and I conmend her for that. Just some of the scenes were too much and in the end I felt truly sorry for Veronica. I guess her only savior is that beautiful blue sky. Out of a 5 I’m giving this book 3 stars. Prepare yourself this book is not for everyone, but if you do read please go in with an open mind. This book was very good." - Lynne "In the end, I was struck by the sadness of unrequited love of two individuals, which to me was the theme of the story. Not the fetishism or the dark themes, but two very lonely and broken people trying to heal the only way they knew how. Thomas' stories aren't about shock value, they're about broken people. Yes, this one covers entirely new territory, and it's not for everyone, but it has a wonderfully bittersweet ending." - Candice Bundy "Big Sky is a sexual fantasy scenario packaged in realism, written in a way so that if the scenario could indeed be brought to life, how would it then play out in the most realistic fashion? And in my opinion, this is what Kitty Thomas does best. She IS able to merge fantasy with reality in a way that I think few authors of this genre can, and still make it layered and thoughtful with moments of real emotion." -iPollux "I bought and inhaled this book immediately after reading Comfort Food. Wow. Kitty Thomas is a gutsy author, and I love that." - D. Green-Norris More dark literary erotica by Kitty Thomas: Erotic novels: Comfort Food Guilty Pleasures Tender Mercies The Last Girl Mafia Captive Blood Mate Submissive Fairy Tales Erotic novellas: Awakening The King's Pleasure The Auction Note: This work is not 50 Shades of Grey, however, if you enjoy work like 50 Shades of Grey, you may also enjoy Kitty Thomas. If you like Kitty Thomas, consider trying some of these other great authors: CJ Roberts, Tiffany Reisz, Annabel Joseph, Pepper Winters, Anna Zaires, Aleatha Romig, Skye Warren, Cherise Sinclair Kitty writes dark literary erotica, usually with a kinky master/slave theme and a hint of bdsm and captive erotica elements.
