reviews

“Couch's richly plotted first novel is a delight and an excellent contribution to the mainstreaming of LGBTQIA+ content. Add to the clever plot a clutch of appealing characters and you have an unqualified success." 
-Booklist

“Earnest, heartfelt, and sincerely moving. Robbie Couch writes with real honesty and compassion about love, family, and friendship in all their beautiful complexity.”
-Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda  

 

"Packed with twists, turns, and a whole lotta love, The Sky Blues tugged at my gay-from-the-Midwest heartstrings.”

-Tyler Oakley, New York Times best-selling author of Binge 

“This story is so pure and filled with hope and a realism akin to Pen15 that I never wanted it to end. It almost made me  want to relive high school.”

-Kevin McHale, actor (“Glee”)   

"The Sky Blues" has “memorable characters,” “believable plot twists,” and “vivid settings.”

-School Library Journal
