Carry the Sky

Intricate and precise lyricism

In a boarding school of uniformity, a pair of struggling teachers set their sights on quelling bullying and overcoming their own emotional obstacles. Set in 1983, Carry the Sky is a poignant look at being an outsider, at being at the mercy of those with more power, at dealing with grief and isolation; a book that hurts to read but is buoyed by lyrical prose and heart-wrenching narrative. Kate Gray crafts unforgettable characters filled with humanity, grace, and just enough humor to offset a haunting exploration of self-forgiveness.
