Saving Sky by Diane Stanley

The country is at war, terrorists strike at random, widespread rationing is in effect, and the power grid is down. But thirteen-year-old Sky Brightman is remarkably untouched by it all. She lives off the grid on sixty acres of rural New Mexico ranch land with chores to do and horses to ride and no television or internet to bring disturbing news into her family's adobe house. Sky's schoolmates think she's a little weird.

Then a string of mysterious arrests begins, and her new friend, Kareem, becomes a target. Sky is finally forced to confront the world in all its complexity. Summoning her considerable courage and ingenuity, she takes a stand against injustice. With humor, hope, and fierce determination, she proves that even a child can change the world.

I liked this book a lot. For one thing it has girls and boys but happens to be romance free! Although it is intense during some parts. This book has a good moral and it talks about the value of human life and that just cuz someone else from jerusalum or china or even america it doesn't mean they are better or worst than you or me. I enjoyed this and recommend it to diane stanley readers.

I loved the book! The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because i feel that some parts just leave you hanging and it doesn't give you enough detail in those parts. You just have to assume. It is about two friends, Sky and Kareem, who go on a great adventure when Kareem's dad gets taken away. Then, Kareem has to go into hiding because they are after him next. He needs a trap where he can hide. Will Kareem get taken? Will Sky get put in jail for aiding a fugitive? Read this amazing book to find out. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
