Description

Emery is a Less Than, raised behind a wall and under a roof that rarely opens, in a system that grooms some to be lowly and some to be Elite. When she is offered an assignment to take care of the Old Ones, she glimpses a world beyond the restricted one she has known.

She plans to escape with Augustus, who longs to see the farm he used to live on, and Emery learns much more about the system that kept her from ever seeing the sky—and about the beautiful, rich world she's been kept from. She tastes food, sees trees, and uncovers her own past for the first time.

A hopeful story about a crumbling dystopia, Skyward is a reminder of what happens when we put money before people, and how love is the best resistance.

This book is amazing, you will not be able to put it down. I will be passing this book a long to my daughter to read, if she enjoys it. I will recommend it to my students

A dystopian story with impactful themes. Some parts of the worldbuilding I found a bit overused considering the genre, and the writing style was a bit more telling rather than showing, but overall, the themes and characters were distinct. I'd feel comfortable recommending this to middle-grade readers ages 10-12 because of the simplistic writing style.

Thank you to Nimbus Publishing for this arc for a free and honest review! I loved and enjoyed reading Skyward, being Less Than is a feeling relatable to many and the story of Emery by Susan White is an extremely compelling tale.
