Randomly read this because I saw it on our bookshelf. First of all: It's a very Australian book. I definitely learned a few new words. The only thing that tripped me up was "torch."

Red Sand, Blue Sky is not one of our favorite books, but the action toward the end did keep my boys at the edge of their seats, so to speak, as I was reading it aloud.

Very very interesting book, and great fun while reading it. It was far better than I expected it to be, and I was very pleased with how the story developed and progressed, and I would be very much interested in reading a sequel to this book, as I feel there is much space for this story to continue on.
The story started off like a sweet tale of two very different girls becoming friends in spite of the odds. But about halfway through it changed into a grand, exciting adventure. Although perhaps geared more toward girls, many boys will like enough pieces of it to have them try reading it.
This is a powerful story of reconciliation set in the Australian outback.
My daughter and I enjoyed this book, the book when from being pretty average to very exciting. The ending left a lot to be desired.
i loved this book. and it took place were i have always wanted to go!(Australian out back) it was a fantastic story i loved.
Quiet, entertaining story.
This was an amazing book! I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot, and my heart was opened wider, for this book makes you cry. I'm very glad that I read it.
A tab predictable, but a good insight into a culture for MG readers.
I like Red sand Blue sky because I think that it was a real adventure for Amy and Lana.
