The Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Heidi W. Durrow
The Girl Who Fell from the Sky

T3aDiva, January 2, 2011

This book is a great introduction into biracial and multi-ethnic children and how they fit into society. The main character, Rachel, is a product of a Danish mother and an African-American father. She has spent most of her life in Europe and never really dealt with being "different." However, after her parents separate and her mother relocates to the US and then commits suicide along with infanticide (killing Rachel's siblings), Rachel must learn to deal with life in an African-American community as an outsider. Ms. Durrow paints a beautiful picture of these struggles, both external and internal, and allows us to follow Rachel during her transition from naive, innocent child to maturing, young woman. We see the mistakes made by her and others around her and we see her grow into acceptance of who and what she is. An outstanding book by this debut author.
