    LOVE LIKE SKY

    Book ID/图书代码: 06540519C00002

    English Summary/英文概要: G-baby and her younger sister, Peaches, are still getting used to their "blended-up" family. They live with Mama and Frank out in the suburbs, and they haven’t seen their real daddy much since he married Millicent. G-baby misses her best friend back in Atlanta, and is crushed that her glamorous new stepsister, Tangie, wants nothing to do with her.

    G-baby is so preoccupied with earning Tangie’s approval that she isn’t there for her own little sister when she needs her most. Peaches gets sick-really sick. Suddenly, Mama and Daddy are arguing like they did before the divorce, and even the doctors at the hospital don’t know how to help Peaches get better.

    It’s up to G-baby to put things right. She knows Peaches can be strong again if she can only see that their family’s love for her really is like sky.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 「愛就像天空。如果你一直開車,一直開一直開,汽油總會用完,對吧?」
    「這就是為什麼我們要去加油站。」
    「對。但你有看過天空有盡頭嗎?不管我們去到多遠的地方?」
    「沒有,當我們抬頭往上看,總是看得到天空就在那裡。」
    「這就對了,那就像媽咪和爹地對我們的愛,愛就像天空一樣。」
    「永遠沒有盡頭?」
    「永遠。」
