Searching For Sky - Jillian Cantor

Okay, does Sky have to sound like a four-year-old child? This is pretty much how my niece would tell a story. All capitals to explain the Places and Things everywhere, which is pretty much useless to readers and adds nothing to the story. Maybe I'm bitter about present tense still. (And...always will be.)


Maybe it'll get better when they actually get off "Island"?
