Publisher's Summary

Renowned journalist and respected author Farai Chideya makes her fiction debut with Kiss the Sky.

Sophie "Sky" Lee is a washed-up rocker who yearns for the days when she poured her soul into music. She gets a second chance when a charity event reunites the old band, and her savvy manager boyfriend puts the group back on tour. But Sophie is pulled in another direction when she finds that Ari, the lead guitarist and her ex, has cleaned up his heroin-addled ways and wants her back.

Critic Reviews

"Full of passionate descriptions of performing, drinking, and sexual encounters, this debut is a messy but engaging shout-out to the rock-and-roll life." (Booklist)
"There are few that can sum up the social political, yet cultural divides and collides like Farai Chideya." (Chuck D)

Do not waste your money

This is the worst audio book I have purchased yet. I have been trying to give it a chance for about two months and everytime I start to listen, I quickly remember why I stopped in the first place. I finally gave up and took it off my Ipod and even asked for my money back. This book is slow, boring and is hard to follow because there is nothing there to catch the attention of their intended audience. Do not waste your money. If I could give this book a negative rating, I would.
