When the Sky Fell on Splendor

When the Sky Fell on Splendor - Emily Henry
It was just the six of the them out driving around when it all began. Nick noticed something strange by the bridge and Levi thought he saw it too but they ignored it. They had more important things to attend to, for their time together was coming to an end. They had a few episodes to film before summer was over.
The abandoned house was perfect. Its legacy left some of the cast members tense as they began filming. Unexpectedly, out of nowhere, the night sky is lit up and the group finds the sky streaked with bright lights. It seems to be a meteor shower. As fast as it started, the lights stop. The sky goes dark. There’s noise. Loud noise. The group tries to understand, exactly what that noise is. There was a rough-scratching sound, like grinding metal which ended with a loud explosion.
Using their flashlights, the group races towards the sound, only to find their dog nearby and the most usual sight that they could image. As Levi records the image with his camera, the group tries to make sense of what they are seeing.
So, what was this thing they found that night? Why do The Ordinary’s feel different after that night? After the group posts their video on the internet, it seems everyone has their own opinion of what it is and what they should be doing.
The characters and the town have had a lot of misfortune which played a part in this novel. It’s not a depressing novel but an important part of the novel. I thought the mystery element of the story was fun. I felt like I was going one way with the story yet I was waiting for something else to come along and change the story. This was a unique book and the ending was not what I expected. It was an entertaining read and one that I was glad that I read.
