"Skylar is my name, tragically."

Sixteen-year-old Skylar is witty, empathetic, sensitive--and mute. Skylar hasn't uttered a single word since his mother died eleven years ago, a senseless tragedy he's grateful he doesn't have to talk about.

When Skylar's father mysteriously vanishes one summer afternoon, Skylar is placed in the temporary custody of his only remaining relative, an estranged grandmother living on an Indian reservation in the middle of arid Arizona.

Adapting to a brand new culture is the least of Skylar's qualms. Because Skylar's mother did not die a peaceful death. Skylar's mother was murdered eleven years ago on the Nettlebush Reserve. And her murderer left behind a son.

And he is like nothing Skylar has ever known.

I want to gush endlessly about this book, but I also want to start reading the next book. The first book of Ms. Christo's that I attempted was The Place Where They Cried, about the Pony Express War. As amazingly written as it was, as vividly as the characters were drawn and the customs of the Nati...

5.0 Gives Light (Gives Light Series)
This was one beautiful YA story. Mute teenager Skylar starts his new life in the Nettlebush reserve and had top gave not only a difficult past, but very recent events, fears and yes, somewhat typical and atypical teenage and coming-of-age problems. The story is beautifully written, with a lot of sen...

I knew I was going to love Gives Light, because it combined two of my favorite things; m/m romances and Native American characters. I feel that there isn't enough diversity in YA fiction, so kudos to Rose Christo for including Native characters! In fact, there is a lot of diversity in this book. We ...
