Forced out of his home, Danny is a young gay man living in the park. He keeps to himself as much as possible to avoid trouble. When a stranger is bullied, he saves him from being seriously hurt. Harry is that stranger who, in that moment, changes Danny's life forever. When tragedy strikes, he has to make some hard decisions. He becomes David in an effort to leave a painful past behind. A new beginning brings new people into his life especially one very special man named Jack. Learning to trust again and accept help doesn't come easy for David. When a long held truth comes to life, will he lose the one person that means the world to him?

The Sky is Dead was all I thought it would be. I was waiting for the release and was quite giddy to see it was available for review. It's beautifully written, taking you on a very emotional ride. The prologue starts in present time and eases into a riveting back story you won't forget. The author gives you a clear picture of Danny's daily struggle to survive. How he copes with the feeling of being unwanted by the people who should love you unconditionally. It's truly a character-driven story with a interesting twist I didn't see coming. There's much more I could say about this book but I won't spoil it for you. Love, acceptance and fighting against all odds is the running theme so brilliantly depicted. Lucky me, I got to read it for free but I would have happily paid for the pleasure. This one deserves to be put on your to be read soon list.
