The Sky Is Dead - Sue  Brown 4.5 stars
This was a beautiful, heart wrenching and emotional story about Danny, who is living on the streets at 16 after being thrown out of his house by his parents when they find out he is gay. The book begins 10 years later, as Danny, now David, is telling his boyfriend about his life before they met. While Danny is reluctant to accept help, and does what he has to in order to survive, he forges a relationship with Harry, a boy he saves from being bullied in the park.

This book would have been a five star read for me, I just had difficulty accepting one important part of the story. I really could not believe that Jack/Harry did not recognize Danny/David after being gone for a year, just because of a haircut and shave, after they had such a close relationship, and that in all the 8 years Jack never figured it out. That did not, however, take away from the powerful, well written story.
