My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Girl Who Fell from the Sky is a tragically beautiful book. The author alternates points of view and uses flashback to tell the story of a young girl of mixed race who is struggling with questions of identity after a family tragedy. Some of the story is disturbing and the lives of the characters are filled with tragedy and abuse, but it ends on a note of hope. I learned something about life and racial identity. I had a new experience through this book. It wasn’t always a pleasant experience, but it was an enlightening one.
