"Saving Sky"  by Diane Stanley

7th grader Sky Brightman and her family live self-sufficiently off-the-grid in a not-too-distant future, when war with terrorists has led to alert days and rationing. They are relatively isolated from shortages and violence...until Sky's friend Kareem is targeted by Homeland Security.

The situation is not far-fetched, and the potential for this story to "be real" overshadows a stereotypical cast of characters. Readers looking for realistic fiction will enjoy this quick, sweet story. No cussing, no kissing, no on-page violence. Ages 12 to adult.
The events may not have happened; still, the story is true. --R. Silvern
