Nothing but Sky by Amy Trueblood


Grace Lafferty only feels alive when she's dangling 500 feet above ground. As a post-World War I wing walker, Grace is determined to get to the World Aviation Expo, proving her team’s worth against flashier competitors and earning a coveted Hollywood contract.

No one’s ever questioned Grace’s ambition until Henry Patton, a mechanic with plenty of scars from the battlefield, joins her barnstorming team. With each new death-defying trick, Henry pushes Grace to consider her reasons for being a daredevil. Annoyed with Henry’s constant interference, and her growing attraction to him, Grace continues to test the powers of the sky.

After one of her risky maneuvers saves a pilot’s life, a Hollywood studio offers Grace a chance to perform at the Expo. She jumps at the opportunity to secure her future. But when a stunt goes wrong, Grace must decide whether Henry, and her life, are worth risking for one final trick.

Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is one of those books that makes me want to yell "OMG THAT WAS AMAZING!!!"

Grace is an 18-year-old wingwalker. She does death defying tricks while walking on the wings of a bi-plane. Her uncle and two team mates are the only family she has. Her entire goal is to get to and win the Chicago Expo to make life easier on them and allow them to stay together. Then there is Henry. He is hired as a mechanic, and his very presence irritates Grace in every possible way for reasons she doesn't understand.

With all odds against them in the form of creepy Alistir Rowland and a detective, they finally make it. Here she experiences: Love, betrayal, pain, and sorrow. She discovers that she has feelings for Henry and you can't always trust the people you love.
