Iris Dancy’s free-spirited mum has left for Tunisia, her dad’s rarely sober and her brother’s determined to fight anyone with a pair of fists.
When a family of travellers move into the overgrown paddock overnight, her dad looks set to finally lose it. Gypsies are parasites he says, but Iris is intrigued. As her dad plans to evict the travelling family, Iris makes friends with their teenage son. Trick Deran is a bare knuckle boxer who says he’s done with fighting, but is he telling the truth?
When tools go missing from the shed, the travellers are the first suspects. Iris’s brother, Sam, warns her to stay away from Trick; he’s dangerous, but Iris can no longer blindly follow her brother’s advice. He’s got secrets of his own, and she’s not he sure can be trusted himself.
INFINITE SKY is a family story about betrayal and loyalty, and love.
Blurb from the Simon and Schuster website:
A truly beautiful book about the summer that changed one girl’s life. As her mum leaves home, Travellers set up camp in the family’s field, her older brother goes off the rails and she falls in love for the very first time. Opening with a funeral, Iris is mourning the boy in the casket – but who is it? Sam, her tearaway brother, or Trick, her tentative boyfriend? Over one long hot summer, we find out just how their three lives were turned upside-down.
I absolutely LOVE this cover!! The color scheme of blue, white, & black is so pretty!! I just adore the simplicity of this cover! Also, the barbed wire writing is so pretty & stands out with that sky blue background. Plus, I love the black birds in the sky! I am just really in love with this cover! Ohhhh did you read that blurb??? It sounds so good!!! And, I kind of NEED to read this book since I NEED to know what happens!
