Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life—and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey's boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie's own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they're the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can't collide without the whole wide world exploding.



I LOVED this book! It easily ranks on my top 5 list of 2010. The characters in this book are so vivid and unique, and the prose is beautiful. Like Heidi R Kling said to me on twitter, "It's like diving into a poem."
The Sky is Everywhere is like diving into a painful, beautiful, epic poem.

Okay, you're convincing me. I just wish it had a better cover!

It's really good. You'd like it. I emailed them feedback on the book and I noted that I wasn't a fan of the cover, and that I had to double check to be sure it was YA.

Yup, I'm not a fan of the cover at all. I would not pick this up if I saw it in the store. :( Maybe some day I'll read it. :)

ohhh, That cover makes me want to pass out from the awesomeness. I'm totally adding that to my to-be read list!

Thanks for stopping by Elana's blog and reading my interview today!
