Summary

Sunny Skies is drowning. The problem, besides the whole not being able to breathe part, is that when her life flashes before her eyes, she doesn't recognize any of it. Convinced the universe phoned in a default slideshow, Sunny gives in to the current.
After a fisherman snags the 26-year-old in his net, she decides it's time to cast off her hermitlike ways. When she meets slightly-less-awkward-than-her Brian, an archery-loving neat freak, she discovers that living her new life might be scarier than drowning. But scary or not, this may be the only chance for Sunny Skies.

Amazingly realistic!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Chance for Sunny Skies to be better than the print version?

"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."

I only had the opportunity to listen to the audio version, but I think it was better- it definitely enhanced the characters and made the story seem that much more genuine.

I can't express how much I enjoyed this, there were so many laughing moments, cringe worthy moments and finally the 'aww' moments. I haven't heard, or even read, many books that portray reality so well- at least in the way they're written. Once I began listening to this I didn't want to stop- it only really took me a while because of my too busy routine. I don't think I could ever get enough of this. The characters were portrayed very well, also: I felt that even though I don't suffer from social anxiety, I could still relate - I hate and shy away from the idea of being in video recordings almost as much as I hate the sound of my voice on record. This book taught the very much needed life lesson that one should take a step out of their comfort zone.The storyline was imaginative, the way Sunny received her wake up call was intriguing. Though it didn't take away the realism: as even she didn't understand the meaning, it was only until later on. During the particularly cringe worthy moments, my thoughts reflected almost the same thing Sunny had been thinking. You don't get many books with characters who are so damn relatable and comedic too. The narrator or performer enhanced the experience for sure. I definitely enjoyed it and will not hesitate in telling my friend's about it. Another feeling I experienced was this sense of intrigue and curiosity, both of which were piqued when Sunny began to experience the visions in her life- I kept wondering how would the next image fit. I'm glad there was no love triangle, instead the book focused on the development of one beautiful relationship.I also loved how despite this having been a romantic book, it wasn't cliché in its romantic element: there was no completely dashing guy, he actually had faults.Oh my, the number of books I have read which feature one 'perfect' man....I'm glad that this doesn't contribute to my list.I am thankful I had the opportunity to hear this, I can't recommend it enough

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was definitely a book I would have loved to have listened to in one sitting, but there just ain't enough time.

Sunny skies is a refreshing new hero!

What did you love best about A Chance for Sunny Skies?

There isn't much I can say I didn't love about this story. Sunny skies is an amazing character with so much spunk and I loved the way with each chapter you just wanted her to achieve more and more.
I also loved how inspiring the book became for me, even though I myself don't suffer from anxieties like she did.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was 100% Sunny Skies. She's a very memorable character with her actions she makes. She grows up, matures and also learns from everything. She self criticizes and really means to change internally.

Which character – as performed by Bridget Haight – was your favorite?

Bridget did an amazing job narrating. I have to again say though, her performance of how Sunny Skies would react had me pulled in immediately. The gasps, the groans, the excitement, the tears, she made all moments memorable and plausible.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The title of the book is a good enough tag line already. I would hate this to turn into a movie and lose the narration as it was in the book.

Any additional comments?

This book has become one of my favorite, one I'm sure I'll listen to again and again.
Sunny Skies was wonderful and by the end of the book, I felt so proud of her, like I'd been there right next to her to help.

Sunni's Journey

This was my first audiobook experience while on the treadmill. The story started out a little slow, first couple of chapters could be tightened up a bit. But after the first 'sign' appears, I was committed to hearing more about the ups and downs of Sunni's journey. Wanted to extend my workouts just the finish the next chapter!!
