"The Sky Between You and Me" is written as a series of poems cataloging Raesha's life after her mother has died and develops an eating disorder. Raesha is part of the rodeo team at her school and being lighter will make her better at competitions. However, Rae has taken this too far, and you can see her downward spiral as she tries to hide what she won't eat (everything) and her obsession with calories. She is constantly running the numbers in her head and even throws up when it is too much. Her boyfriend and friends don't seem to understand and she is very good at avoiding these situations where they would be eating together and hiding that she doesn't eat anything (or much of anything). As for the format, I found it really hard to follow for about the first 5% but then it got progressively easier to read the style and figure out the story, feelings, and conversations. I can't imagine how difficult it was to write this style for so many words! If you don't like poetry though, this probably is not the book for you (I wish this was clearer in the description that this would be the book writing style). The book is well written and really allows the reader to get into Rae's head and see the eating disorder as it takes over her life and has the potential to ruin her relationships and health. I think it was good to see how it not only affects her, but those around her- such as her father. I was also glad that it ends with a message of hope and healing (not at all glorifying eating disorders but rather portraying them to people who may not understand). It's really well done throughout. Please note that I received this book from the publisher through netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
