If there’s one book that I have absolutely loved in 2020, it’s Akemi Dawn Bowman’s Harley in the Sky!

Within its circus setting, Harley in the Sky explores so much surrounding family, friendship, identity, belonging and mental health.
Since my review won’t be coming until closer to its March 10th release, I couldn’t help but share my love for this book by doing the Harley in the Sky Book Tag! I saw this tag completed by Lili of Utopia State of Mind, who is a member of Harley in the Sky’s Street Team. The Harley in the Sky Book Tag was created by Jemma of Fantastic Books.
