The Girl Who Fell from the Sky
Tammy Parks's review
Aug 17, 2016
3.75 A thoughtful and beautiful book. Rachel is the daughter of an African American GI father and a Danish mother. Due to a horrible tragedy, she lives with her paternal grandmother. Slowly, the story of Rachel's mother, father, and siblings is revealed. There is an interesting parallel storyline about Jamie, a young man who witnessed the tragedy and comes to play an important role in Rachel's life. This is a sad, but also uplifting and inspiring, look at the life of a biracial teen, a girl caught between two worlds, not quite feeling at home in either one. My only complaint is that the ending felt a little rushed, and some of the characters were underdeveloped, but still a very enjoyable read.
