The Sky is Everywhere: Jandy Nelson: Laurel Mueth. Lennie is seventeen, and her sister just died. Her mom is nonexistant; she left when they were little. She feels all slone now that the perfect image of her sister is gone. As she struggles to cope with her feelings about her sister, and about her mother, another problem occurs. There is Joe, the music guy, the guy that makes her laugh and feel loved. He takes away her pain and hurt and sorrow. And then there is Toby, her sister’s boyfriend, who understands her sorrow on a personal experience. Her relationships are confusing and she doesn’t know what to do. She keeps finding these notes around town, poems she wrote back when her sister was alive. Poems she left places to encourage people. Through finding the poems, she realizes that her own words, coming from a time when her biggest worries were about her math homework, are exactly what she needs to help her to move on. I personally loved this book. It made me cry more than once. The only thing I didn’t like, however, was what happens between Toby and Lennie. Or what almost happens. Thank you, Joe. I also really enjoyed the name of the book. I don’t know why, but there’s something kind of hopeful in it, and it suits the book for many reasons.
