Skye Falling

A Novel

By Mia McKenzie
Narrated by: Bahni Turpin
Length: 11 hours 38 minutes

Skye Falling

“I absolutely loved this debut novel by Mia McKenzie, featuring Skye, a Black queer 30-something woman returning to her hometown (Philly). Skye is an inconsiderate, commitment-phobe with an utterly relate-able knack for running away from her problems and re-writing history. Some might say she's unlikeable but I'll admit I was easily disarmed by her scorching wit and endearing charm. With a great cast of supporting characters, Skye Falling was a laugh out loud funny tale of a woman forced to hold herself accountable, rethink her "always on the go" lifestyle and maybe fall in love in the process.”
