    1. WATCH THE SKY is my first middle grade novel it s about creaky old barns, and silent sisters, and secrets, and danger, and signs in the night sky s also about shovels I can t wait to share it with youre about WATCH THE SKY soon for now, check out my pinterest inspiration board photo credit JacquelineBarkla


    2. Honestly, this one felt like it got too unrealistic after about halfway and the ending was way too rushed and abrupt RTC.


    3. I m normally not one to read middle grade books, but Hubbard s book I had previously read was full with beautiful writing, and I knew that I d want to experience something similar again, also who could resist this gorgeous cover Watch the Sky was a lot different to what I was expecting it to be, but the main character Jory really impressed me He had lived a sheltered little life with his family, told to always question things, keep to himself and keep quiet about his family his family had taken [...]


    4. This review and many can be found on my blog Feed Your Fiction AddictionThis book is really tough to review because I loved it, right up until the very end, when I thought, Wait That s it Still, I ve given myself a little time to ponder it, and I think I m okay with the abrupt ending mostly.The book follows Jory, whose family is preparing for something He s never really quite sure what he just knows that his stepfather is sure that something bad is coming, and that they need to be prepared So, [...]


    5. Kirsten Hubbard is one of my favorites for a reason.Like her YA titles, this is brimming with heart, with little details that tickle your nose and rest gently on you like warm sunlight through an open window Every character is real and deep and thought out.Particularly a little girl who her brother believes is 98% starlight And every word makes you believe she is.I m already filing this away on my aggressively recommend to everyone I know who loves middle grade list Watch out.


    6. I had hoped this would be an interesting middle grade story with a survivalist theme Unfortunately, like some other books in this vein, it veered off into unbelievable scenarios and unrealistic characters.Please, dear author, I want some For me, the best part about this book was its premise I thought Jory s stepfather sounded intriguing, with all his talk of signs, and I figured he must ve had a good reason for believing what he did and convincing his family to go along with it There was a bit o [...]


    7. Horrifying Jory s mother married Caleb, and Caleb moved them out to the farmhouse on the edge of the canyon, just beyond town Then they found Kit, a girl they d never seen before lost in their garden, and they took her in, but told no one Then Jory s mother and Caleb had a baby, Ansel And then Caleb told them that the end of the world was coming He had seen the signs The Officials were out to get them And they had to prepare by digging all night, for weeks, to create a bunker for the end of the [...]


    8. SPOILERS This story centers on Jory who is an 11 year old boy growing up on an old farm with his mother, step father, adopted sister and brother My appraisal at the end of the story is that Jory s step dad Caleb is an ex soldier who served in the war and appears to suffer from PTSD by the end of the book you realize that he needs professional help He keeps watching for signs of the impending apocalypse such as a meteor shower or dead birds He runs his family like a military unit having them all [...]


    9. 3.5This one was recommended by my brother and I actually really like it I m working on a collective review for a couple of books I ve read, hopefully I ll have it up soon for people to read and enjoy.


    10. Originally posted on Fables Library.Have you ever read a book and were surprised by it s genre Have you ever been blown away by a super great story that you never thought would turn out as AWESOME as it did Well the answer for both of these for me at least is YES A whole HECK YES Watch the Sky is a Middle Grade book, not Young Adult like I thought, yet it still manages to meet my expectations and I am a fan of Middle Grade and Young Adult books obviously, I just didn t know that this was Middle [...]


    11. This book was very intriguing and interesting I really liked the premise and Jory, the main character I was really interested in Kit s story and background We really didn t get to know much about her I did not really like Jory s mother because she I felt like she was so helpless and needed someone to help her and protect her I can t really blame her because she has been through a lot Caleb is definitely my least favorite character I did not trust him at all throughout the book I found it strange [...]


    12. There are signs everywhere according to Caleb, Jory s stepfather All the fish in an aquarium facing the same way, a cracked egg with twin yolks, red leaves in the springtime, pages torn from a library book.what do they all mean These are signs foretelling that the end is near They must be prepared They must always watch the sky They must wear their work boots or have them at the ready Food has been pickled and canned Batteries, flashlights, blankets and supplies are all stocked The family has un [...]


    13. When Caleb came into Jory s life, he seemed like the man who could bring happiness security back into Jory s and his mother s lives They moved out to a farm, took in a girl, Kim, they found out in their fields, had a baby boy, and watched for the signs that the end was coming When Jory was placed back in school in the sixth grade, after having been homeschooled for a year, he started to make friends and enjoy himself He loved learning Soon, though, Caleb told the family that it was time to start [...]


    14. This was a well written story about a young boy and his family Jory s stepfather believes the end is near and sees signs in everything around him He begins to dig a bunker in the canyon behind his house in order to save the family Jory questions his step father but is told that Jory will understand the reasons for the bunker later In the mean time, Jory loves school but because he must help his stepfather dig every night, his work begins to suffer There is much to the story than this though The [...]


    15. I was really disappointed in this book The main reason was I could not stand the dad I found him controlling and thought the mother was crazy for following him The ending was not that great and I felt there was no real ending I wanted to be solved.


    16. I loved the scenery this book, it felt like a painted picture put into motion I loved the feeling it had to it, it wasn t a stiff story but it was smooth and fast, I couldn t put it down





    17. The premise for this independent reader book intrigued me and it seemed like the sort of story I would enjoy, so I decided to check it out While it wasn t altogether a disappointing read, there were aspects about it that fell quite flat, so much so that my reaction upon finishing it wasWhich usually isn t a good sign no story related joke intended.First, let me start with what I liked Jory, the main character, is a good protagonist who is protective of his nearly mute sister, Kit He s also devot [...]


    18. This book is so good It is about a boy named Jory His stepfather believes in signs The signs are for some sort of danger No one knows what the signs are for but Caleb the stepdad thinks it is a big deal so they start to dig They are digging a bunker so they can be safe Then Jory has lots of school trouble after they began to dig They had one digging schedule but Caleb caught on that Jory needed to catch up on schoolwork So Caleb gave Jory Tuesday as his day off other then Saturday.


    19. Watch the Sky is about twelve year old Jory and his family who, following his stepfather Caleb, are looking for signs None of them are sure what the signs will be or what they mean There are times that reading on a kindle is kind of disorientating I bought Watch the sky a few months ago but hadn t gotten around to it It was in the queue and as I started reading it I realized that I had NO earthly idea what it was about what genre it was, what the cover looked like or anything else aside from the [...]


    20. I haven t felt so strongly about wanting people to read a book in a very long time The fact that it is Middle Grade did not diminish my enjoyment of it at all It was well written, it had beautiful imagery, it was heartfelt, and it kept me hooked until the end I had strong opinions on Caleb from the start, and though it is never actually clarified, I think it is fairly obvious that he is severely mentally disturbed and has a massive case of PTSD I want kids to read this and see modern day pre tee [...]


    21. The story Jory s family keeps to themselves His stepfather, Caleb, is sure that something big and terrible is coming he says the signs are everywhere Jory isn t quite sure what the signs mean, but he knows Caleb just wants to keep the family safe when Caleb has the family start digging a bunker in the canyon behind their farm, Jory helps out even though his grades tank and his friends are starting to get curious Somehow, Jory has to decide how to deal with the signs and his stepdad s obsession w [...]


    22. IS THE FREAKING DANGER REAL OR NOT Yes, yes, it s good that the family was able to stand up for themselves and realize they don t have to follow what they were told is right like many of us self discover as we grow up , but the story feels incomplete We got the climax, but not a resolution or an ending Caleb the stepfather having Protective Services take away Kit adopted daughter was a dick move and led to the family taking their chances without him, but will that even matter if they just end up [...]


    23. I found this book intriguing since it was in our Children s room at the library I d love to hear what young kids think about it Caleb was in, presumed, Afghanistan or Iraq war, and suffered trauma In the book, he became very paranoid about the government and began seeing signs The signs could be the end of world or At any rate, Caleb had his family dig a bunker for safety Jory is the protagonist and he really was a well liked character Poor kid was pretty sheltered His mom had migraines and deve [...]


    24. Jory s stepfather Caleb is a war veteran who believes that danger is coming and doesn t trust the officials or anyone else for that matter Although he lets Jory go to public school he keeps Kit, a mysterious girl who showed up one day and they have adopted and Ansel the baby at home and pretty much hidden When Caleb feels the signs are getting ominous he devises a schedule for the family to dig in the canyon At first Jory doesn t understand what is going on but soon realizes they are building a [...]


    25. Jory is a boy who lives with a not so normal family At first it was just Jory and his mom who suffers from frequent migraines They were barely surviving with money and the terrible job his mom had when they met Caleb he used to be in the army Celeb was determined to keep them safe from an great danger that is coming They move to a fairly secluded farm where they prepare for the disaster that will come Jory brother named Ansel is born and they find Kit, a little girl who rarely talks Celeb is ver [...]


    26. This book had an interesting story line and presented a new perspective upon beliefs and trust In a way, this book could relate to a totalitarian government, like Hitler and the Nazis or Mussolini and the Fascists The higher authority presents a belief that they are confident in, therefore you trust it and support it However, when you see that this brings pain and loss, then you start to question that belief, and without strong evidence or proof about the belief, then you start rebelling That is [...]


    27. Jory trusts his step father Caleb, and believes what he says about the signs he sees everywhere Jory and his mother are indebted to Caleb he saved them when things were really bad And now Caleb promises to save them again, from a secret Danger that he won t give Jory details about Instead Jory, his mother, Caleb, his secret sister, and even his baby brother are required to dig a bunker at night in the canyon outside their farmhouse This is to provide shelter for them when the Danger comes Caleb [...]
