Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an impossibly lovely tale—but then, as Nashville, the soaring heart of this exquisite novel, learns, nothing is impossible when you follow your dreams.  BEYOND THE LAUGHING SKY is a triumph."—Katherine Applegate, Newbery Award-winning author of The One and Only Ivan 

"With sharp yet fanciful imagery and prose magical enough to make readers feel that they, too, can fly, Cuevas weaves a story that illustrates how we all have the power to become what we are meant to be."—Booklist

"Readers will end the book with a new sense of possible."—Kirkus 

"With a variety of metaphorical language and imagery, this short read engenders the theme of acceptance and aspiration of fitting in."—School Library Journal
