Infinite Sky, by C. J. Flood
A gentle and tightly-written novel that is ultimately a bit dull and seemingly geared at an adult audience. Precocious young readers might enjoy its pacific pace, but there is entirely too little about Iris's feelings and little appreciation for how a young heart thinks. Instead, this seems like a book for adults looking back wistfully on a "summer that changed me forever" -- an admittedly popular and appealing genre, but something quite distinctly different from YA.
Somehow, I also miss the significance of the cover or the book's title. They are both pretty but not really much related to the ideas of the novel.
