Praise

“Maybe it’s because we’re coming out of a year of isolation, or maybe it’s because I’ve spent far too much time extremely plugged into social media, or maybe it’s simply because I’m a Gemini, but sometimes, I wake up and crave chaos. I (truly, emphatically, unconditionally) don’t want to be a part of the drama—but I do want to read about something so outrageous, so unexpected, so out of pocket, that I feel as if I am buzzing and I can’t help texting my friends to gossip about it. How lucky I am, then, to have read Mia McKenzie’s hilarious, electric novel, Skye Falling.”The New York Times
 
“This endearing and hilarious book is an ode to chosen family, soft Philly pretzels, and the people who make us feel at home.”Buzzfeed

“Best described as a queer, black Fleabag set in Philadelphia, this [is a] favorite summer read.”Parade
 
“One of the truest depictions of modern queer life I’ve read in a while.”BookRiot
 
“A disenchanted protagonist for the ages.”Bitch Media

“Razor-sharp and outrageously funny, Skye Falling is an absolute winner. Mia McKenzie has created a one-in-a-million heroine in Skye Ellison and has crafted an entirely fresh story about love that charms with curmudgeonly wit and a tender heart.”—Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Malibu Rising

“I can’t remember the last time a book made me laugh, cry, and reflect as thoroughly as Skye Falling. Mia McKenzie has written the kind of story I’ve been searching for, and maybe even gave up on as a possibility, and now, suddenly, it’s here. This is a narrative about family, responsibility, and home. It’s a new kind of love story, the best kind, and you’ll be turning the pages just as quickly as I did.”—Ashley C. Ford, author of Somebody’s Daughter

“Mia McKenzie is writer who can move from heartbreak to laughter in a single paragraph, while brilliantly reinventing queer family and friendship and the ways in which we get stuck and unstuck along the way. When I could manage to put this book down, I looked up from its pages to a world charged with new potential.”—Torrey Peters, author of Detransition, Baby

“What if your most wounded, immature, rude, self-destructive, and antisocial habits were forgotten when a twelve-year-old walked into your life, saying ‘Love me’? This page-turner had me laughing out loud at Skye’s acid tongue and thoughts, and yet without abandoning the barbs it unearths—and earns—something like grace. Full of vivid women, each complex and funny as hell, Skye Falling reads like a hot summer jam, and it adds up to a lively, full meal.”—Quiara Alegría Hudes, author of My Broken Language
