A review by milkshakevoid
Even if the Sky Falls by Mia Garcia


Glorious. This book is everything I want from writers and more. I don't have a single complaint, and I can safely say that it's one of the best books I've read this year.
I'll be buying my own copy, and recommending it to everyone I know, because regardless of your favorite genre, you should read this book.
No other book does for a city why Mia Garcia just did for New Orleans. Having been there myself, (and not liked it), her words make me want to revisit the city and try again, because she conjured up some serious magic.
Contemporary anything is never high on my list, but the words in this book flowed so beautifully, with such grace that it pulled me right along at break-neck speed and then some.
All writing and story telling super powers aside, my favorite thing about this novel is Lila and Miles and the fact that they are a mixed race couple, and fucking perfect. Also, the blue hair doesn't hurt. But I loved the culture that's woven into Lila's thoughts about her Abuela so much.
And I think we can all agree that the only thing Tavis needed more was a swift kick to the groin, but no matter, this book and it's ending were beautiful.
