I don't care if it's a boy or a girl. I'll call it Lennie.

And bailey. I can't even begin to explain the heartache I feel when reading about bailey. Mar 26, Larry H rated it it was amazing. Jandy Nelson doesn't just write books—she creates dazzlingly beautiful, poetic masterpieces of words and images, which leave you breathless and shaken to your core, your mind spinning. Her second book, I'll Give You the Sun see my review , still holds a place in my heart and my brain almost four years after I read it, and it made my list of the best books I read in I've always wanted to read her debut novel, The Sky is Everywhere , but I've held back, because it made me happier knowing Jandy Nelson doesn't just write books—she creates dazzlingly beautiful, poetic masterpieces of words and images, which leave you breathless and shaken to your core, your mind spinning.

I've always wanted to read her debut novel, The Sky is Everywhere , but I've held back, because it made me happier knowing there was still one of her books I had yet to read. But after being a bit of an emotional wreck after seeing Love, Simon this past weekend what an amazing movie , I thought why not just plumb my emotional depths? Once again, this book had me crying, exclaiming aloud at some of her words, and seriously wanting to applaud when I was done.

And I thought her second book was a tiny bit better than this one! Bailey, an aspiring actress, was larger than life, dramatic, a force of nature drawing everyone into the centrifugal force of her being. Lennie, more cerebral, a musician, was more than happy to play second fiddle to her sister, who has been her protector since their mother left them with their grandmother when they were little.

I'm a companion pony, and companion ponies don't solo. They don't play first chair or audition for All-State or compete nationally or seriously consider a certain performing arts conservatory in New York City Suddenly their relationship is overcome by intense longing and passion, something that Lennie has never felt before, yet she isn't sure whether she actually wants Toby, or if being with him is a way of preserving her sister.

And when a breathtakingly handsome new boy, an immensely talented musician, comes to school, Lennie finds herself falling for him with an intensity she never knew possible, yet it is an intensity complicated by her feelings for Toby.

I mean really kiss him, like I've wanted to do since that very first day in band. No sweet soft peck about it. With the same lips that just kissed someone else, I kiss away his question, his suspicion, and after a while, I kiss away the someone else too, the something else that almost just happened, until it is only the two of us, Joe and me, in the room, in the world, in my crazy swelling heart.

Holy horses. It's a book about how love consumes us, bewitches us, makes us believe we are the only ones who have ever felt this way, and that it's okay to act impetuously, foolishly, carelessly with others' feelings.

At the same time, this is also a book about finally finding yourself after willingly standing in shadow for so long, about coming into your own and finding the courage to act, and about understanding how your past shapes your future.

Nelson's storytelling fills you with emotion, makes you root for her characters, and just leaves you gasping with amazement at times because of her word choices and the feelings Lennie is experiencing.

You want to hug her and protect her, yet you want to shake her, too, because of her single-mindedness as she ignores her family members and friends. I hope Nelson has another book in store for us soon. Not everyone enjoys YA books as much as I do, but Nelson's books are so beautifully written, so intensely felt, that you're missing out.

She is a talent that deserves to be experienced, and her stories deserve to be read. See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoria. View all 29 comments. Apr 02, Kai rated it did not like it Shelves: I'm so glad this is over for so many reasons. I'm also really confused and disappointed. This was such a let-down, especially after reading I'll give You the Sun , which was an immensely rich and beautiful book.

I don't understand how those two books can be so different, how one can be so impressive and the other one just weak.

Anyway, I'm glad I read I'll give You the Sun first, otherwise I would have never picked it up, as this was the biggest disappointment. Here's why: It's like two entirely different people.

Did anyone feel the same way? Or am I the only one? Find more of my books on Instagram View all 17 comments. Funny how I needed to relax and ended up not being able to put it down until I finished the last page, at 2am. Lennie Walker is a teenage clarinetist whose beloved sister, Bailey, suddenly dies of a heart failure. This is the story of her journey through grief and loss, through teenage hormones and love, through family and friendship, in the quest to eventually find her true self and survive her sister's death.

I loved this book on so many levels I need to organize my thoughts on a list. So I am going to give a star to every thing I liked about it: My edition came in the style of a diary, with the little elastic band lengthwise to keep it closed, a rough cover, a used look.

Not to talk about the whole book being printed in blue ink. I fell in love instantly. This author, this woman, is a published poet. I felt bad for so many other authors whose books I've read lately and don't stand a chance when compared to this. Her writing style is musical, evocative, colorful, humorous, snarky, visual And let's always remember that we're talking about YA lit here.

Her descriptions are so intelligent and to the point I couldn't help but note them down. One for all, when Lennie describes Joe Fontaine's cheerful character: Does he even know that death exists?

It struck me so, because I thought about myself and realized how until a few years ago, I thought I was immortal or close to it. Then you have children and all you can think is that you'll die soon.

But apart from this, there are so many great passages in the book, you just need to pick it up and read it. Lennie, after her sister dies, starts to write little notes and poems to Bailey and about Bailey, snapshots of their life together. She writes them on anything she can find, candy wrappers, abandoned coffee cups, toilet walls, tree barks and then she just leaves them there for everybody -or nobody- to find.

All these handwritten notes are printed out at the beginning of each new chapter throughout all the book, with a note on where they were found but not by whom.

It's like they're a little book within the book and their purpose comes clear at the end. This book is not about flawless characters - even though, end in end, it seems to be about flawless love and that's the part I liked least - because Lennie does many stupid things in the story.

This would all be extremely hilarious if not for the fact that the family is totally submerged in grief for Bailey's death and does not have a clue how to cope. Lennie's response is shocking: And she makes a total mess out of it, of course. My last star goes to the way death is treated in this book. I thought it was true, realistic and very honest. Her descriptions of how she felt left behind, of all her grief, of the unjustness of a broken life and of her guilt and loneliness at being the one who survived, really touched my heart.

Lennie writes on a note: I wish my shadow would get up and walk beside me I wouldn't know how to express loneliness in a better way. Highly recommended. You can read my reviews also here: View all 10 comments.

A lot of my wonderful, wonderful friends. I now clearly understand why so many of my friends have fallen in love with this book. I undeniably have as I have gone through all the symptoms of falling madly in love with a book.

Too much information? Dec 06, Christy rated it really liked it Shelves: YA book 2 in Jandy Nelson has this special writing style. The Sky is Everywhere is a powerful story of a young woman dealing with grief the best way she knows how. I loved both the guys, Joe and Toby. I felt for Lennie and understood her. I also really loved the grandma. Best character in this book! She was so quirky and eccentric. I listened to the audio book and the narration was good. The story was interesting, well written and beautiful.

View all 28 comments. Favourite Quote: And when we kiss, I see that on the other side of that door is the sky. So I thought I use some pictures to help express my thoughts. The Sky Is Everywhere made my heart ache. The above picture pretty much sums up Lennie's life and also the way it made me feel while reading it.

My emot Favourite Quote: My emotions were all caught up in this story thanks to Jandy Nelson utterly gorgeous writing. All the poems and notes scattered throughout this book really captured the pain Lenny was feeling.

But there were also funny and happier moments that warmed my heart as well. Lennie, I could really empathise with her and feel her pain as she looked for a way to deal with it. I didn't always like her choices but completely understood them and it was wonderful to watch her grow and work towards happiness.

This story also has interesting secondary characters that are just as well crafted. You could feel Toby, Gran and Big's pain as you watched each of them deal with their grief differently and Sarah's confusion and hurt as Lennie pushes her away. The romance in this book is that epic, forever, two souls connecting, kind of love.

It does happen somewhat fast but it works because of the writing that really expresses how Lennie feels when she is with Joe. And also because of Joe 'quel major dork', 'bat bat bat' - for those of you have read the book it will make sense. He has such a gorgeous soul. And well his passion for music makes it hard not to fall for him. He has found a place with my other literary crushes. I really wished I could have written some more detail and depth to this review to express how I felt but I am hoping these pictures will get across the words I can't.

Overall, this book is a story about love, that I fell in love with. View all 19 comments. I know everyone seems to love this author, but I just couldn't get into the story. The main character irritated me, there wasn't much of a plot, and everything felt a bit disconnected from reality. There were a few emotional moments or ideas, but otherwise I didn't care about very much. The book itself wasn't bad View all 13 comments. I loved this so much for the first half but then I became excessively irritated with Lennie and I just couldn't handle it.

Video review soon! View 1 comment. Mar 15, Katie rated it really liked it. This book was seriously so wonderful. It deals with grief in a way that was so spot on and beautiful. Jandy Nelson has this superhuman ability to articulate really hard to explain emotions completely perfectly and its just the best. Recommended to Sita by: Truthfully this really isn't even a review. IT's more of a list of questions and comments.

SO if you actually like the book. I recommend turning away. Cause this is sort of a hate review. But really? Any disagreements? Okay yep theres a lot. Maybe I'll give it another go in a couple years. But right now. It's just not working for me.

I was hooked on her every word and could probably listen to what she had to say for like ever! Everything she shared about herself and her feelings served a purpose and not one word was wasted. In her own special way she came across as unintentionally funny, unabashedly snarky and unapologetically honest in what she expresses, feels and struggles with. Those were the last words she ever spoke to her sister that she loved dearly. How would I feel if those were the last words I ever spoke to one of them???

But as Lennie showed us, in the same world where something as horrible as a sister dying, something as wonderful as falling in love can happen.

This book hit close to home for me in so many ways it felt surreal. I just have to mention a few characters that surprisingly won me over quite quickly. He was just full of awesomeness! Those are just a few characters that I had to mention, but this story if filled with gems that will pull at your heartstrings the entire time and the ending is one that will leave you uplifted and filled with hope. I have no use for talking. I want to make her feel better.. I hear your soul in your music.

Oct 29, Kim rated it did not like it Recommended to Kim by: TBR Reduce Challenge 1- I really tried. I don't sympathize with Lennie, I don't get her Toby thing, I don't feel her loss or her pain.

It's like watching a movie without sound: I wanted to like this so much because so many of my friends loved this. View all 85 comments. If I could give this book a thousand stars, I would! Review later: This was breathtakingly beautiful and heartrendingly tragic read! I had wrongfully anticipated this to be a cute Summer read full of angsty teen romance and not much else.

The story follows Lennie Walker as she attempts to cope with teenage life and its many multiplying predicaments following the death of her big sister, Bailey. I immediately felt an affinity and empathy with Lennie as, just two pages in, she professed her love for Wuthering Heights ; my all-time favourite book! My love for this This was breathtakingly beautiful and heartrendingly tragic read! My love for this fictional character only grew as we learn of her lonely depressive and dismal inner-most thoughts through the poetry she stashes around her town.

Her beautiful soul was matched by the stunning and lyrical quality to the writing.

I warmed to the entire story and could even forgive the emergence of the dreaded insta-love! Despite the touching subject-matter, there was levity and humour added to the text in the form of Lennie's Gram and Uncle Big. Her eccentric home life made me feel all fuzzy inside and I adored reading these sections especially. Once it got white spots Once it got brown spots However, both times, the girl and the plant perfectly recovered!

But this case seems more upsetting, cos black is the color of mourning plus the long line of sorrows that comes with it! The Sky is Everywhere is a story about finding your own sky out of grief and self-discovery. This common premise turns into a story packed with magic characters, by the pen of Jandy Nelson. The kookiest elements of this novel are all true: A grief-stricken girl who scatters her poems all over town. This book is really sad, and full of grief, but also hopeful, and uplifting?
