Reviewed: The Sky Is Everywhere

The Sky Is EverywhereThe Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The funny thing about this book is that I had the opportunity to read it on its release date. I boxed it up for some schools and even though it looked like a diary, the text was blue and it had some pictures I still wasn’t captivated.

It as only when I saw it on a Goodreads list with a different cover that I decided to borrow it from my library only to find out what book it was.

What can I say about this book? The blurb doesn’t do it justice! Based on the blurb alone I would have put this book down which is what I did last year. This time, because of the excellent rating I decided to read on.

It is an incredible read! I was so involved from the beginning and as the end neared I just didn’t want it to finish and when I did I wondered if there would be a sequel because a few things are left undone.

So, what is it about? Lennie has just lost her sister and she is trying to work out how to deal with that. Lennie does some crazy things like getting it on with her sisters boyfriend and for some reason leaves anonymous notes around town about conversations with her sister.

Then enters Joe Fontaine, the new boy with the infectious smile and lovely brothers. Lennie can’t help but be captivated by this ray of sunshine that has entered her life.

The voice of this book is pretty much perfect. A lot of the time, I don’t like this type of character but it suited the situation here perfectly. Very well narrated.

Final verdict? I want more!
