Cantor did a fantastic job with Sky's re-entry into civilization. Sky desperately wants her life to be the way it was. Everything in California is overwhelming and confusing for her. While I will never know that struggle, it definitely helped me relate to Sky and to root for her. I was crazy intrigued by the reason they went to Island and couldn't get enough of that slow reveal. So good.
I've never read anything like SEARCHING FOR SKY before and I'm so glad that has changed! I really enjoyed the book (save for that ending stuff I mention in a moment) and will definitely be recommending this one out.
