Dundurn Press is thrilled to announce that The Limitless Sky by Christina Kilbourne has been named a finalist for the 2023 Saskatchewan Young Readers’ Choice Awards in the Snow Willow Award category. Congratulations Christina!
Trapped in a life she didn’t choose, Rook struggles to find meaning in her appointed role as an apprentice Keeper of ArHK. Even though her mam soothes her with legends of the Outside and her da assures her there are many interesting facts to discover in the Archives, Rook sees only endless years of tracking useless information. Then one day Rook discovers historic footage of the Chosen Ones arriving in ArHK, and she begins to realize her mam’s legends are more than bedtime stories. That’s when Rook begins her perilous and heartbreaking search for the limitless sky.
