The Sky Always Hears Me

The Sky Always Hears Me: And the Hills Don't Mind by Kirstin Cronn-Mills is the story of Morgan - a high school junior who lives in Central Nowhere.

Morgan is biding her time until she can graduate and use college as a vehicle to get her out of the small town she live in in central Nebraska. Her dream is to write the Great American Novel and it order to do that she feels she will need to live somewhere else.

In the mean time, Morgan is dating a jock. She feels it brings her status up since on her own she is a boring bookworm. But Derek has nice muscles and he likes her so when he asked, she said yes. Now they have been dating for a while. But Derek is not the only one in town who likes Morgan.

Tessa, Morgan's neighbor, kissed her. Morgan is not sure how she feels about the kiss, but she did kiss Tessa back. She will have to take some time to think about things - which she expresses best in fortune-cookie style statements. Luckily, she can always talk to her grandmother.

Cronn-Mills gives readers a look at small town America and the different people who live there. Her main character is quirky and likable and readers will root for her as she carves her path to freedom.
