The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
Before I say how good this book was, I want to say that this is not a book I would usually take off the shelf to read. Jandy Nelson does a terrific job of telling Lennie’s story. By chapter 3, The Sky is Everywhere had my attention and then I just couldn’t put it down! I wanted to know Lennie and what was happening in her life; the way Ms. Nelson put in excerpts from Lennie’s journal made me feel very connected to the character. I am SO glad that I read this book and look forward to other stories by Ms. Nelson.
