About the Author
Cory McCarthy [he/they] is the acclaimed, bestselling author of five released children's books and just as many forthcoming titles. His books have been translated into several languages and have appeared on the Bank Street, Barnes and Noble, Book Riot, and Tor best books list, as well the Amelia Bloomer list of feminist children's fiction. Their upcoming titles include a middle grade trilogy and nonfiction picture book. They teach at Vermont College of Fine Arts and, like many of their characters, are a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
"Strong characterizations, action, adventure, and emotion combine to produce a sci-fi novel that is more than just the sum of its parts." -- School Library Journal
"This riveting near-future science fiction military adventure reads like a cross between Top Gun and Ender's Game, blended with just the right amount of adolescent angst. [...] With her faux-hawk and her self-protective sass, Chase emerges as a fascinating heroine, equal parts warrior and troubled teenager, whose entire life is a battlefield. [...] Replete with fighter pilot jargon, plausible science fiction elements, and nerd-friendly literary allusions, this taut, well-crafted novel should have broad appeal, for fans of everything from Roth's Divergent to Wein's Code Name Verity." -- The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
"McCarthy (The Color of Rain) deploys breath-stopping depictions of high-stakes piloting with enviable ease, and the in-your-face personal confrontations are nearly as taut. Both will keep readers glued to the page. " -- Publishers Weekly
"Chase is the kind of reckless, badass girl I would have wished I could be more like when I was her age. She's willing to take risks, extremely skilled, and looked upon by the other cadets at the junior Air Force Academy as a rockstar because of her job as one of two Streaker pilots. " -- Forever Young Adult
"BREAKING SKY by Cori McCarthy is an exhilarating novel with a realistic main character and intense action scenes. " -- Teen Reads
