Up in the Sky So Blue
Up in the Sky so Blue by Lisa J Graff was a real joy to read. At times, it brings tears to your eyes, while other times you are delighted by the fantasy of the characters. The book is about a young woman wanting (and needing) to escape her everyday life. As Covid-19 has taken over our lives in 2020….many of us also want (need) to escape reality.
A beautiful melding of sentiment and fantasy
