#MMBBR #Review Running for Water and Sky by Sandra Kring @kring_author

They say that right before you die, your whole life flashes before your eyes. But what they don’t say is that the same thing can happen when your soul mate is dying.

After spending most of her 17 years being shuffled between families that don’t want her, Bless Adler has no intention of opening her heart to anyone. And then she falls in love with Liam Reid.

The closer Bless lets Liam get, the more fearful she becomes. Then her new friend, Maylee, convinces her to go see a local psychic―and the woman’s glimpse into the future is anything but reassuring: Bless’s absent father, drunk and bitter. A frantic crowd gathered at the beach. Liam lying in a pool of blood, a gun at his side.

Now Bless has 14 blocks to reach Liam on the shores of Lake Michigan. If he’s still alive, she’ll beg for him to fight for his life. If he’s not, she’ll say good-bye to the first person who made her want to fight for her own. Edgy, intense, and emotional, Running for Water and Sky is a story of the elation and angst that comes with love, and the challenge of learning to trust when betrayal is all you’ve ever known.

Kring has proven herself to, yet again, be able to masterfully tell a story that captures the attention of her audience and to cause the reader to feel deeply and fully about the characters in the book.  This time Kring writes a YA novel.  Running for Water and Sky still has the brilliance and intelligence of Kring's adult novels and both the younger audience and adult will be able to relate to the story. I adore King's writing.  It is beautiful, almost poetic, real and both heart breaking and heart warming at the same time.  Another hit...5 stars

NOTE:  I won this book and this is my unbiased opinion.
