The Sky is Everywhere
Author(s): Jandy Nelson
Adrift after her sister Bailey's sudden death, Lennie finds herself torn between quiet, seductive Toby--Bailey's boyfriend who shares her grief--and Joe, the new boy in town who bursts with life and musical genius. Each offers Lennie something she desperately needs... though she knows if the two of them collide her whole world will explode.
Join Lennie on this heartbreaking and hilarious journey of profound sorrow and mad love, as she makes colossal mistakes and colossal discoveries, as she traipses through band rooms and forest bedrooms and ultimately right into your heart.
As much a celebration of love as a poignant portrait of loss, Lennie's struggle to sort her own melody out of the noise around her is always honest, often uproarious, and absolutely unforgettable.
A haunting and uplifting novel about bereavement and living again. The Bookseller
Entirely compelling ... delightful. Guardian
I loved this book. It was everything I wanted it to be and more. And I haven't read a book this beautiful in a while. It was just so brilliant, and it wasn't just beautiful, it was heart wrenching and heart warming and funny and romantic and just... Amazing. It's the sort of book that even when I'm done with it, I dream about it, I think about all the other possibilities, the characters and their future, you know? My favourite part of The Sky Is Everywhere though was probably the poems. They were great! They were so beautiful to read, and so raw. They really helped me grasp Lennie and Bailey better, and I love the idea of just scattering them, letting it all go. It just all fit so well. The Sky Is Everywhere is a beautiful book that will probably make you laugh and cry, and swoon and sigh and it will make me you mad and angry and so happy and content at the end. Or at least that's what I felt reading it. Plus the poems are awesome, and the whole book is just stunning. 5 stars. -- Cicely Cicely Loves Books Blog
