Reviews

"You'll root for Sky... and have the joy of watching him overcome setbacks and find his own strength. This is a highly recommended book, especially to fans of Albertalli's Simon books who want the same kind of feel."-- "Online Eccentric Librarian"
A JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION

"The author creates memorable, believable characters who inhabit vivid settings. Couch excels at crafting believable plot twists... Recommended for fans of David Levithan."-- "School Library Journal"
"Earnest, heartfelt, and sincerely moving. Robbie Couch writes with real honesty and compassion about love, family, and friendship in all their beautiful complexity."-- "Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda"
"Packed with twists, turns, and a whole lotta love, The Sky Blues tugged at my gay-from-the-Midwest heartstrings. Ready for more from Robbie!"-- "Tyler Oakley, author of the New York Times bestseller Binge"
"This story is filled with shadows and light, struggles and wins, and with characters we can all relate to."-- "Sarah Butland, Imagination Captured"
"An optimistic... coming-of-age narrative."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"The Sky Blues is the first book I've read that so fully encapsulates the dynamics of growing up queer during adolescence, without falling into the usual dramatic tropes - it's a perfect snapshot. This story is so pure and filled with hope that I never wanted it to end."-- "Kevin McHale, actor (Glee)"
"Debut author Couch structures the book as a promposal countdown, building suspense and showing how Sky... realizes he's braver than he thinks, and claps back to the bullies, improving school culture and finding his community along the way."-- "Publishers Weekly"
