Hello fellow book lovers! I'm Lucy and I blog about books, audiobooks and movies at The Reading Date. I'm testing the waters over here to see how it goes. What are you reading?

The Sky Is Everywhere

The Sky is Everywhere - Jandy Nelson In The Sky Is Everywhere we meet Lennie, a band geek who has just lost her sister Bailey. Lennie is a very gifted clarinet player but has always been over shadowed by her older sister. This book deals with grief and love, and how Bailey's death effects Lennie, Toby (the boyfriend she left behind), and her family. Lennie and Toby bond over their grief, around the same time that she meets a new gifted musician in town Joe. I liked Lennie, and her emotions and grieving felt honest. I felt for her and enjoyed watching her healing journey and seeing her confidence grow. This is a sweet, touching debut novel with quirky side characters that will make you laugh and cry.
