Drawn to Steffi, her wild ex-best-friend who reminds Lucy of her mysterious, unpredictable brother, and music-obsessed Evan, the new boy in town, Lucy starts asking questions. Why did Cam die? Was it an accident or suicide? But as Lucy hunts for answers she discovers much more than she expects. About Cam. About her family. About herself.
Unable to venture back into the water, and face her squad with the shame of being Aquaphobic, Lucy reconnects with her wild ex-bestfriend, Steffi. Now with a time table of free-time that had once been taken up by training, Lucy finds that she was once much too caught up in her own swimming career to notice what was truly happening around her.
Desperate to find out what exactly happened that night when her brother left her world, Lucy becomes obsessed with finding out just who this mysterious person is behind the text messages that still appear on Cam’s phone, even though he’s gone now… She may have feelings for new boy, Evan Harris, though all her emotions are muddled up and she can’t seem to disperse how she feels, with her emotions for her brother’s death getting in the way.
I truly adored this all-new debut novel, by Australian author, Trinity Doyle. Trinity tackles the aspects of heartache, friendship and love all in one journey as we explore the true meanings of life. Pieces of Sky was beautifully written packed with hurt and longing, but also filled with hope and love.
At 25 she took her vague emo poetry and wrote a novel. Then she spent five years rewriting it. The ASA called her work ‘edgy [and] convincing’ and she thinks that’s pretty neat.
Trinity lives in Newcastle NSW, with her husband, daughter and cat. Pieces of Sky is her first novel
