After an acrimonious break up, the Mystery Inc. However, Will does not actually know if he has any powers of his own, and has not told his parents this. He and his best friend, Layla are facing their first day of a secret school in the clouds like none on earth: Sky High, the first and only high school for kids with super-human powers going through crime-fighting puberty.

But with no apparent superpowers of his own, however, Will seems destined to grow up a mere sidekick. But as he discovers his true strengths, he'll also learn that it takes loyalty and teamwork to truly become a hero! I saw the advance screening of this movie last night and I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised! I went into this movie expecting a cheesy kiddy movie and ended up spending the next hour and a half being seriously entertained.

The story is about a group of freshmen in their first few months at a super hero high school named "Sky High. These high school newbies have the additional dilemma of learning to use their powers and live up to the reputations that their parents have established as super heroes.

The movie is sweet without sending the viewers into a diabetic coma, and has a great message. The theater I was in was also full of little ones, who I never heard a peep out of! The movie is a great treat for the entire family and will make a great break from the heat or a rainy day activity! Start your free trial.

I cannot think of another author who writes such layers, such nuance, and with such an eye for the beauty in every day life. He is, to quote the great philosopher Lola, My favorite and my best. Bree Taylor Yep. I shed tears at the sanctuary callback with the unnamed artist too.

All I can say is, it was a great read. I blame this book for the reading slump which has haunted me through most of July. It was such a great mix of action -- the kind that makes it really hard to put a book down at any point -- and fascinating characters, whose emotional struggles also made for no good point to leave off reading. I loved living in this world and being with these people.

This is one of those books that didn't feel long at all, because it was just so good. I could happily have spent another two weeks reading it. And I was very, very sorry to finish it. My only nitpicks are: First, what exactly is the definition of "fantasy"? This story has no magic, nor is it set in a world significantly different from our own.

It's more "alternative historical fantasy," which takes elements of our familiar world in this case, parts of Europe and the Middle East , places them on a similar but tilted map, and turns the time to a sort of fourteenth century feel. In his note at the back of the book, GGK calls his books "historical fiction with a twist," which I guess sums it up. Second, since this was set in a European-type world, most of the characters are white, and that got me wondering, if you're going to come up with an alt-Earth, why not be a little more creative with the human diversity while you're at it?

All the familiar Europe-type places and people felt just a bit bog-standard to me. But that was really the only thing that dulled my enjoyment of this book, so the five stars stand. Highly recommended!!

Children of Earth and Sky, his novel, is set as so many of his works in a fantastic world but one not far removed from our own. This seems like an alternative history Europe, perhaps Middle Ages eastern Mediterranean. The reader is introduced to a world of intrigue among competing empires and city-states.

Using a shifting perspective narrative style, the author applies omniscience to further explore the psychology of the interactions between the characters. Sociological and cultural distinctions between the nations are also fascinating. Aug 28, Wanda rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fantasy , when-words-collide , speculative-fiction , canadian-eh , read-in Actual rating: 4.

Since I read Under Heaven three years ago for my real life book club, I have been gradually chipping away at his works and have adored every single one of them so far. This too was a big, thick book and I read it in two days. There were no threads left hanging, nothing unresolved, nothing that I could daydream about after it was done. I have some ideas of which cultures Kay based his characters on, but I would like to have a bit more background.

Even without an extensive knowledge of the history of the Mediterranean area of that period, I enjoyed the storyline. It was convoluted and told from many different points of view. As always, GGK provided some admirable female characters and a couple of not so honourable women too, of course that prevent this novel from being solely about scheming men. He is masterful at creating believable women, apparently believing that women are people. As we are. I enjoyed it immensely, but would probably not recommend it as a first book to introduce oneself to GGK—for that honour, I would nominate either Under Heaven or River of Stars , both of which are set in an Ancient China-like setting and are absolutely stunning.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for free in exchange for a review, but I just can't say that I loved it when I didn't. I'm not even sure how to describe what this book is about. I finished reading it and wasn't even sure what the point was.
