Editorial Reviews

Review

“The stories of the main characters intertwine beautifully, each one demonstrating the self-trust that enables them to do the right thing and to forgive. Writing in Ruby's voice, Ferruolo creates an engaging plot peopled with complex characters that gracefully navigate many issues of our time, including women's rights, immigration, prejudice and diversity, and bullying.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Ferruolo’s debut has a quietly magical feel, aided by passages describing Ruby’s fascination with the moon. The faraway moon serves as a poignant theme throughout the book and connects satisfyingly to Abigail’s backstory. The story also skillfully depicts everyday injustices and how those in power control the narrative unless ordinary people stand up against them. Ferruolo includes many examples of these brave, ordinary people. . .A quiet yet powerful story about courage.” ―Booklist, starred review

About the Author

Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award, and the New Voices in Children’s Literature: Tassy Walden Award.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great New Read Aloud
By Sht2350 on June 12, 2019
I just finished the book: Ruby in the Sky. As an educator for 23 years, I choose my read alouds very carefully because it is the most important part of the day in my classroom. If you are looking for a book to bring your class together, teach empathy and the challenges of finding your own voice this is a must read. I will be reading this book to my 4th grade class, but I believe it could be read up into middle school and beyond. Topics such as, space, Apollo 11, phases of the moon, astronauts, criminal justice, immigration, empathy, friendship, socio economic diversity, gender equality and more are woven throughout this book. There's even a dog. <3 Check it out!
