Night Sky by Jolene B. Perry Blog Tour and Book Review!

Jolene grew up in Wasilla, Alaska. She graduated from Southern Utah University with a degree in political science and French, which she used to teach math to middle schoolers.

After living in Washington, Utah and Las Vegas, she now resides in Alaska with her husband, and two children. Aside from writing, Jolene sews, plays the guitar, sings when forced, and spends as much time outside as possible.

She is also the author of The Next Door Boys and the upcoming 
Knee Deep.


 Girl I’ve loved, girl I’m falling for. Now that they’re both in view, the problem is clear.
After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her.
As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums - she's way more than distraction. Jameson's falling for her fast.

But Sky’s need for honesty somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.

My Review:
After reading the first chapter of this book, I could already tell that I was going to love it.

Jameson. Sky. Yep, great characters in the making. I could tell I would love them.

I mean, cute sweet boy who is in love with his best friend of three years and never tells her. Instead puts her happiness in front of his and helps her get the guy that she wants, while it breaks his heart doing it and never lets her know?

What isn't to love about someone like that?

Fun loving girl that flies by the seat of her pants and helps rescue Jameson and his broken heart?

Yep. So going to love this book.

After finishing this book and absolutely loving it, I am ashamed that this is the first time I have even heard of Jolene Perry and of course I had to go on Amazon and buy her other book because truly I fell in love with her writing style and characters.

This book was just so beautifully done. From the emotions of the characters to the storyline, the way the characters reacted and interacted to one another. Their hardships and triumphs and just their growth (even from the adults) was just awesome.

I truly became wrapped up in the story and read it is one sitting. I put everything else on hold so I could just lose myself in the story and the characters.

I became attached to Sky and Jameson and I was a little (okay maybe a lot) sad when their story ended. I wanted more. I still want more, even now hours after having finished it.

I am going to have a hard time finding something else to read after this one. In fact, I think I might have to wait a day or two before picking up my next book.

This book stands out in all the right ways and will be one you will think about long after finishing it. It will definitely be placed on my favorite reads list for 2012 and Perry is an author that I will be buying all of her releases as soon as I can.

That is why I give this book a very solid 5 out of 5 Stars!!

  3. I have this on my reading schedule in about three weeks and now I am looking forward to it. Your review and Sam's @Realm of Fiction are very favorable. I gathered that this is one of those books that sinks its tendrils into you and leaves you lingering over the characters for a few days after. I have to say I absolutely love the cover.

  4. I am guessing you will love it too Heidi! And yes, the characters do tend to stick with you long after their story is through.
