The Sky is Everywhere

by Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere describes how Lennie deals with the aftermath of her sister's death through the company of two boys-Toby, her sister's boyfriend, and Joe, the new kid in town. Toby shares Lennie's grief for her sister and offers her a shoulder to cry on. Joe, however, is bursting with life and gives Lennie the happiness she craves after such a dark time in her life. Both boys offer Lennie something that she seriously needs, but she knows that if the two of them knew about the other, everything would be in ruins. Lennie must navigate through this situation, while also coping with the loss of her beloved sister.

I loved this book. It is a great story, filled with constant twists and turns. Lennie made many mistakes that kept me on the edge of my seat, but these mistakes worked themselves out in the end in order to reach an amazing conclusion. I also really appreciated the raw, real emotion that the novel possesses.

I definitely recommend this book to others because of its fantastic storyline. If you like realistic fiction, you would enjoy The Sky is Everywhere.
