I was expecting great things because of the incredible hype surrounding the book, but I was bored throughout. The book itself wasn't bad How old is your kid?

I sobbed my eyes out and then laughed through the tears. Books by Jandy Nelson.
Families can talk about books and movies about loss. She writes with abandon, setting her characters free to live their excesses, such as the hippie gardener whose flowers have magical properties, the best friend with a penchant for crazy animal metaphors and the inarticulate skateboarder whose pain finds only sexual expression. 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.

Videos About This Book. Bailey's sudden death from arrhythmia while she is rehearsing the lead in the play Romeo and Juliet throws Lennie, Gram and Uncle Big into a depression that takes some time to overcome. The relationship between Lennie and Toby I though was portrayed brilliantly — I loved also how Nelson has created wonderful, quirky characters and has made them appear so realistic. Readers may be inspired by the characters' attempts to move ahead, even after a big loss.
Many of you would probably be severely irritated by uandy dreamlike experience. 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.
Overall I think it was impossible for this book to be as good as her other one but I overall enjoyed it. Lennie attempts to cope with her loss by leaving notes and poems throughout the town, wverywhere often contain conversations the sisters had before Bailey's death.

The Sky Is Everywhere. I kind of hated Lennie and I have no idea why?
I loved Joe, he was a little cinnamon roll. My emot Favourite Quote: It's just not working for me.
I would recommend this book to be for a more mature audience due to the fact that there is some sexy material, like when Toby and Lennie hook up and when her an The mixed reviews have already proven as much. Each offers Lennie something she desperately needs… though she knows if the two of them collide her whole world will explode.

Families can talk also talk about wacky families. All of the characters are crazy. I really enjoyed this book. Maybe someone will read them. It just all fit so well.

For Your Family Log in Sign me up. Somehow it just seemed so realistic. Writing a plot thd or trying to explain The Sky Is Everywhere in any way would probably do more harm than good. Anything to not be able to feel pain or connecting in a way that keeps the memory alive in some twisted up way, but there it is, making this situation more bittersweet then it already is.
