Infinite Sky by C.J. Flood

Infinite Sky by C.J. Flood

Iris' mom left home and ever since then her life has gone off the rails. Her brother's so angry about being left behind that he's abandoned his best friend for a group of teens known for getting in fights instead of drawing like he used to be interested in. Her dad's drinking more than he's working and he's developed an unhealthy obsession with the Irish travelers who have been squatting on his land.

Iris thinks the newcomers are fascinating, particularly their handsome teenage son. When they develop a friendship, it's just about the only thing that seems to be going right in Iris' life.

But, as her summer reading book, The Outsiders says, "nothing gold can stay," and Iris' summer romance is about to come to a screeching halt.

This book deals with how the world keeps on spinning, even when terrible things happen. Iris and her family do not take a lot of chances to really talk to each other about what's happening in their lives or how they feel about each other, but they soon realize that the chances to do that are anything but infinite. It's an all too realistic story for fans of Jenny Hubbard or Jandy Nelson.
