The Year We Fell From Space

By: Amy Sarig King
Location: Fic KIN
Genre: Mental Health, Middle Grade

A beautifully produced and published book about a deeply affecting topic.

The deeply affecting next book from acclaimed author Amy Sarig King.
Liberty Johansen is going to change the way we look at the night sky. Most people see the old constellations, the things they've been told to see. But Liberty sees new patterns, pictures, and possibilities. She's an exception.

Some other exceptions:

Her dad, who gave her the stars. Who moved out months ago and hasn't talked to her since.

Her mom, who's happier since he left, even though everyone thinks she should be sad and lonely.

And her sister, who won't go outside their house.

Liberty feels like her whole world is falling from space. Can she map a new life for herself and her family before they spin too far out of reach?
 

"Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone or any age. In particular, those around the 10-13 age who are experiencing a divorce within their family or are struggling with their own mental health. If you like slower, more emotional contemporaries with a twist- this is perfect." Sarah

"So if you want a thought provoking, original and heart warming story to get back to your inner child, to understand mental illness, to understand divorce, to understand the importance of talking and expressing yourself, and if you like stars, then I definitely recommend this book. It is a true wonder." Garance
