Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Hannah wants to spend her senior year of high school going to football games and Mardi Gras parties. She wants to drive along the oak-lined streets of Louisiana's Garden District and lie on the hot sand of Florida's beaches. She wants to spend every night making memories with her tight-knit group of friends.

The last thing she wants is to fall in love with a girl - especially when that girl is her best friend, Baker.

Hannah knows she should like Wally, the kind, earnest boy who asks her to prom. She should cheer on her friend Clay when he asks Baker to be his girlfriend. She should follow the rules of her conservative community - the rules that have been ingrained in her since she was a child.

But Hannah longs to be with Baker, who cooks macaroni and cheese with Hannah late at night, who believes in the magic of books as much as Hannah does, and who challenges Hannah to be the best version of herself.

And Baker might want to be with Hannah, too - if both girls can embrace that world-shaking, wondrous possibility. Contains mature themes.

    "STUNNING!!!"

    probably my most loved story to date. story was fantastic, all the characters story's and the narrator was brilliant. I'm not religious and although it has some parts about religion , it is by no means trying to make you believe or not believe something. It's a fanatic book and I would recommend it for anyone. listening to this book I could really feel for the characters, it gets right to your heart and you find yourself feeling there pain and happiness.

    Story
    "Such a good read"

    I read reviews and listened to the audio sample before I purchased...
    honestly, I wasn't that impressed with the sample. I thought, "what the heck. I'll just get it."

    It's a very realistic book. It captures the inner struggle some face in regards to religion and morality when coming out. I truly loved and cared about all the characters. The author described the setting and feelings in a way where you could see it and feel it. I felt the heart break ,and I felt the love.
    I enjoyed the narrator as well.

    Just get it. What have you got to lose?

    Story
    "Intense, relatable, beautiful coming of age story"
    What made the experience of listening to Her Name in the Sky the most enjoyable?

    I got genuinely invested in each character and what they were going through. The character development made the book whole and full of substance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that Hannah and Baker, while going through similar things, come to terms with who they are in very different ways. The sometimes tortured path they took was hard to see them go through, but it felt honest and real.


    Which character – as performed by Piper Goodeve – was your favorite?

    Piper Goodeve brought all the characters to life in such a way that was touching and memorable. Her narration truly added so much to the experience of loving this book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was moved by every part of the story and it will remain etched in my memory for a very long time.

    "Wonderful book of 1st love"

    As I read this book I thought back and wish so much times were different when I was younger which brought so much emotion to me as I read this wonderful book. I recommend it to anyone who feels the same or just to anyone who wants a good book to read and enjoy.

    Story
    "Fantastic. "

    Thos book could have been by numbers. It isnt. sich a great exploration of what it feels like to be young and in love. My only negative is maube the boys in this book are a little too eloquent and mature towards the end. Explores many issues and handles religion especially well.

    "Decent teenage love story"

    All the Catholic religious stuff was really annoying but aside from that the story is a cute one. Nothing ground breaking but decent enough to justify the price.
    The audio performance was really good overall, no complaints there.
