really liked it

This was such a sweet and enjoyable read!

This book was powerful for me because I used to be a teacher and it brought back so many memories and made my heart happy :).

There are two parallel storylines that are brought to light in The Secret of Clouds. Maggie is a teacher and connects with one student in particular Yuri who has a heart condition that is mostly taught at home. As the story progress, Maggie and Yuri form a powerful bond as they both are inspired and learn from one another. The second storyline is about Yuri's parents move from Soviet Union to the United States in the 1980's.

It was a tad bit predictable where the story was going but I still enjoyed this emotional and raw story.

Alyson Richman displays a beautiful tribute to devoted teachers and all the ways that they inspire their students. Our kids need more teachers like Maggie in this big world of ours <3.

Overall, a sweet and enjoyable read.

4 stars for The Secret of Clouds.

Thank you to Berkley Publishing for the arc in exchange for an honest review.
