Excerpt from Goodreads:
Just like any other morning, Skylar Rousseau is late for school, but when she is greeted by a blanket of silent stares upon entering Blackfin High, she discovers that the whole town thought she fell from the pier and drowned on her sixteenth birthday three months earlier. However, Sky remembers the last three months living her life as normal, and since she is a full, living breathing human being, she has no idea whose body is buried underneath her tombstone. Everyone seems reluctant to help except her steadfast friend and crush, Sean . . . and a secretive man who draws her to a mysterious circus in the woods.
Sky must wade through impossibilities and lies to discover the truth about what happened to her, which proves to be a bit difficult when someone is following her every move with the intent to harm her. And Sky’s only hope of finding the answers she seeks may have already been turned to ashes.
This was a book that I had such high hopes for. I figured since the synopsis and cover are so fantastic, the book just has to be good right? I was wrong. I felt like I was going through the motions during this entire book. It wasn’t as if there were things that were terribly bad about this book, it was just a dull read for me. There were a few moments that were confusing and felt like there was missing dialog or narration, but that is the only compliant I have for this book. Blackfin Sky isn’t a “bad” read by any means, it just really missed the mark with me.
