“… as life continues throwing her curveball after curveball, Mindy [the protagonist] is forced out of her head and into the real world, where, for the first time in a long time, she takes the difficult step of confronting herself to determine what she wishes the future to hold.
“The Speed of Clouds is a compelling read for many reasons. First, the characters themselves are treated as complex individuals. No one falls into tropes or stereotypes, and the diversity present transcends boundaries of class, ability, race, and sexual orientation. … Because the characters are so well-written and come across as fully formed people, The Speed of Clouds is able to address themes of community, acceptance, and openness with the depth these themes deserve.
“Overall, this is a fantastic read with characters who will make you cheer and hurt for them, a plot that delivers, and strong depth of feeling all the way through.”
