The Girl Who Fell From The Sky


I picked this book up as part of a buy 2 get 1 free deal going on at Barnes and Noble. I'd never heard of the author or the book, but it looked decent enough.  This is a story of a young girl who survived a terrible tragedy. Both of her parents were damaged people; alcoholics both suffering from depression. Rachel's mother was a white woman from Denmark and her father a black army man. After the accident, Rachel goes to live with her paternal grandmother. While living with her, Rachel grows up and has to face the demons of her past and also the racial prejudices of being a biracial girl.

I gave this story 3 stars because of the writing. The plot could have been developed so much further. I am not a fan of books that keep the reader hoping for more. This is a quick read, but definitely not a must read
