The Whole Sky by Heather Henson 

I received this book from #kidlitexchange to read in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟The Whole Sky by Heather Henson. Sky Traveler is a 12 year old girl dealing with issues way over her head. She is a horse whisperer only not only can she talk to them she can hear them speak to her. As she works on a horse farm helping during falling season she is grieving the loss of her mother, stillborn goals, and a drunken father. Sky’s favorite horse, Poppy is one of the last mares to give birth so after losing so many goals they send Poppy and a few others away to a clinic in hopes of saving the babies. Sky becomes angry more angry than she has ever been. Even when the investigators came to find a scientific reason for all the foals dying Sky can not stand the thought of being so angry. Soon Sky goes to the hospital to see Poppy and is urged to go see the baby. Sky helps nurse the baby back to health and soon the babies and Mares are going home. Sky becomes close with Dr. Nash and they work to help find the cause of why so many goals died this season. The results will change the way Sky sees her future and life as she knows it. This book deal with very real issues that while we hope children never have to deal with, unfortunately these issues are there. The concepts and solutions provided in this book are detailed enough to allow children to grasp the subject. Beautifully written. Review also posted on Instagram @jasonnstacie, Library Thing, Go Read, Amazon, and Goodreads/StacieBoren.
