Turning Skies brings together an Alaskan Native American teen and a successful teen film actor who find each other on social media. Even though these two teenagers came from vastly different cultures they converged on a course they otherwise could never have realized. It's a poignant, humorous and sometimes revealing look into their personal relationship as they grapple with danger, friendship, honor, secrets and love in a world of complexity.
This coming of age novel engages a new movement away from social norms of past generations as it confronts established cultural, sexual and global attitudes. Through open eyes and open minds they answered a fundamental life question about who they are and what they could be. It rises from a simple idea, a neglected idea, an ancient idea, and without proclaiming it, the story simply displays it through the lives of two willing human beings. Written for 15 and up.

From Turning Skies:
Snowhawk spoke is a soft voice, "Sometimes the silence speaks in words that cannot be heard by ears. The words, like a warm breeze, pass between us through places untouchable. We know the words but we can't hear them. Still we understand them, and they pierce our hearts like a knife that can never hurt us, a knife that can heal us but only if we openly allow the speaker to push it to the hilt."
