Skies Like These (YA)
Book #5 Read in 2015
Skies Like These by Tess Hilmo (YA)
Jade goes to Wyoming to visit her Aunt Elise. She meets Roy, a neighbor boy who believes he is a relative to Butch Cassidy. Roy wants to rob a bank, steal artwork and other get-rich-quick schemes to help his parents have enough money to reopen the family business. Roy figures he should be able to do so, as any good cowboy would. Jade has to try to help him be realistic and reasonable. This was a good, quick read. Jade and Roy are both intelligent and interesting characters. Secondary characters are interesting as well and the plot will engage reluctant readers. I borrowed this book from our town library.
