Sixteen-year-old Morgan lives in a hick town in the middle of Nebraska. College is two years away. Her mom was killed in a car accident when she was three, her dad drinks, and her stepmom is a non-entity. Her boyfriend Derek is boring and her coworker Rob has a very cute butt that she can't stop staring at. Then there's the kiss she shared with her classmate Tessa...
But when Morgan discovers that the one person in the world she trusted most has kept a devastating secret from her, Morgan must redefine her life and herself. Praise for The Sky Always Hears Me: "Written with candor and splashes of humor...this provocative story captures the essence of adolescent ennui and uncertainty through an uncensored first-person narrative. Stubborn, quick-witted and determined to make her dreams come true, Morgan will draw sympathy from readers."--Publishers Weekly "Morgan is a well-drawn character and her funny, frank, profane-but-literate first-person voice rings true and strong-teens might find it liberating to meet a character who can take on life's messiness and forgive it."--Kirkus Reviews "Cronn-Mills does a great job of getting into the head of a teenager. The dialog fits and the drama is clearly evident.--Midwest Mix
