A book review by littleangel
: ) The sky is everywhere by Jandy Nelson.
Format: Hard cover
Length: 304 pages
Lennie Walker is a girl who just lost her sister and is trying to move on, more or less. Lennie is your normal band/book geek, with no love life to speak of. She tries to grow with her sister's boyfriend Toby, but then you throw in the schools newest heartthrob, Joe, who just moved to town from Paris. To her, one of them comforts her in the sorrow she’s fallen into, and another takes her out. Which will she choose?
I really liked this book. I’m normally not one for sad books, but this was my exception. Even though it was sad, it had this humor in the background to keep you reading with a smile. Even though it was sad, and I will admit I did cry, it was amazingly written. I felt all the pain, why she did what she did, and in a way I got to know the character very well. I recommend reading this book for people who are looking for a good laugh or a book that makes them cry.
The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the fact that I cried. I hate crying for books, and that’s bad because I get into the mind of the character very easily. Although I only cried in one of the chapters, and I still loved the book! So I challenge you to read this book and not cry--good luck.
I really like the cover; it was colorful and matched the title very well. I know if I saw it I would read it immediately, it was very eye-catching. I like the colors and just really the look all in all.
5 out of 5 chocolate bars : )
