You may be wondering why I keep using the main character’s name instead of pronouns. Well, Sam’s gender is never revealed. The author leaves you guessing, and for the life of me, I can’t tell. I was able to guess at a few things based on foreshadowing, but this wasn’t one of them. This, paired with the story line of Sam trying to survive in the world T. M. Brenner created, kept me interested throughout. I will definitely be buying the rest of this series! Give it a read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
The book sounded promising and when the project funded, I received a signed copy. It took me under a week to get through Sky Child. It can certainly be considered dystopian but dystopian on a level that thrusts the readers back to the stone age. The story follows Sam through a series of circumstances that thrust Sam (unwillingly) into a leadership role among the hunters of The Crag (the system of caves where all the survivors live -the only people on earth for all they know). It is a very human story dealing with survival, politics (among the cave dwellers), love, loss and self-discovery. Sam has adopted two ‘brothers’ and raises them as if they were his/her own children -a unique spin on the typically independent dystopian protagonist. Not only the attachment and vulnerability that comes along with it but the ambiguousness of the sex of the main character, Sam. It is an easy, quick read with a satisfying conclusion. If you haven’t heard of T.M. Brenner, you will. Sky Child is well worth a read.

It is a book that makes me want to keep reading and wants the next book to be finished printed to see what will happen next for Sam.
