When Cassie’s brother Sef, who is the glue to their family, leaves for the war in Iraq, the family begins to fall apart. Cassie’s view of the world begins to change for the better when fate leads her to the blog written by Blue Sky, an Iraqi girl Cassie’s age, whose own life is collapsing at the mercy of the war in Iraq.
What I liked most about Dear Blue Sky was the correspondence between Cassie and Blue Sky. Through their emails they were able to support each other even though they live in different worlds. I would recommend this book to people ready to read about how war can affect people’s lives.
