The Sky is Everywhere

I am absolutely in love with this book. It was so heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. I never cry during books and this had me in tears. My emotions were running so high while I was reading this. It makes you step back and think about things. Makes you appreciate the people in your life a little more. You just don’t know when life is going to take a curve and I think Jandy captured this so well.

As I was reading I felt so sad that Lennie is sad and anytime that she feels any sort of happiness, it just gets sucked right back out of her. She feels she cannot feel any sort of happiness when her sister just died she feels so much guilt that she is experiencing happiness when she never will again. I just wanted her to feel some sort of happiness and be able to take that with her to bed and wake up with it in the morning. I don’t know what it is like to lose someone as close as a sister so I don’t know how to feel so then I felt like I was being insensitive and it was breaking my heart even more reading this.

Aside from this being sad to read it was a very easy book to read. Pretty fast faced I felt but not too fast because then you wouldn’t have time to feel all those emotions so I think it was paced just right. Jandy knows how to write that’s for sure. I highly recommend this book and I cannot wait to read her other book I’ll Give You The Sun. It is another contemporary novel that I want to dive right into.

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.
