This is a good thing, since it helps to keep the story and the characters rather fresh. While there are four main protagonists (Pecan, Mya, Nikki and Jackie), they do not necessarily share the book equally. Pecan was by far my favorite, which was lucky since she appeared to be the most heavily featured earlier in the book. Mya is pretty heavily featured as well, and even narrates the opening chapter (which, set in 1983, helps newcomers to ease into the series). As the book goes on, Jackie occasionally features more than Pecan, and actually has more chapters in total. Nikki has the least, but is certainly not ignored. Each of them has their fair share of drama to deal with, concerning such dark themes as addiction, violence, and other problems that seem insurmountable when the average person is faced with them in daily life.
The third book, “How to Kill a Caged Bird,” looks as if it will continue to revolve around Mya slightly more than her sisters, but this is fine. She is one of the strongest characters, although they all demonstrate a great deal of strength considering their hardships. Not only does “Blue Sky” present the reader with excellent dramatic fiction, but it seems as if the Morrow girls series at large could be a source of empowerment for some women who have felt bogged down by the problems life throws at them. A truly fantastic book.
The dialogue is well thought out, simple and spontaneous, giving colour to each of the characters and that which underlines their diversity, thoughts, soul and physicality. Each character, depending on age and outlook, is confronted with choices regarding:
-- Safety, social, educational, religious and cultural support;
-- Familial rules;
-- Inter-family relationships, love and marriage;
-- Sibling rivalry, jealousy;
-- Family tragedy, conflict and illness;
-- Perils, moral challenges, and pitfalls in life;
-- Growing-up pains, sacrifices, career choices, loyalties, trust and forgiveness.
The author knows the heart of a girl and gives through her entertaining writings, her characters roles to teach young people to have fun and be safe. Through adhering to discipline and set boundaries which are so easily crossed under peer pressure, teens are shown the values to help them tow a straight line.
Young adults will have time well spent when reading this series.

I'm chomping at the bit for book three but I am told it'll be awhile. I'll be waiting!
