In Skyward it’s about a young girl named Spensa who has dreamed about flying to the stars ever since she was little. When she loses her father she questions her whole childhood. She wants to believe that her father would never do such horrible things and that he was a good man. She also learns about herself and that with hard work she can attain her dreams. She learns that no matter what people think, you always need to believe in yourself, and I can relate to that. I would recommend this to anyone who likes an adventure from front to back. It’s really a good book by a good writer.
