This is such a lovely book. I felt Lennie's grief like an ache in my heart. Her worry about grieving the "wrong way" made me want to hug her. (Tip: There is no "right way" to grieve.) The selfishness that Gram calls her on is a very typical teenage thing, I think.

Now, for the boys. I loved Joe, of course. Who wouldn't? Lennie's descriptions of him, and his brothers (batting eyelashes, smiles that light up the world, etc.) were so smitten and cute. I didn't love Toby. I tolerated him by the end, because I finally sort of understood why he'd done what he did. I didn't forgive him (or Lennie), but it was at least a bit more tolerable, and I was very happy with the way things ended up for them. ( )

With the unexpected death of her sister, Lennie’s drowning in grief, it pulls her away from a friend, it isolates her from her grandmother, and it makes a mess of her love life.

The most obviously contentious thing about this book is an inappropriate relationship which will be challenging for some readers to get past, understandably so. I definitely didn’t enjoy those scenes but it isn’t like Lennie enjoys them either, it’s the rock bottom of her grieving process and I feel like the author did a really good job of explaining why those moments happened, conveying the emotional turmoil these two people are in, how utterly lost they are.

When it comes to the actual romance in the novel, I loved Lennie and Joe’s tortured chemistry, there’s a bigness and a poetry to their feelings that might be a bit much for some, but he’s an emo musician and she does write poetry (in addition to also being a musician), and for both of them it’s really their first time being (to borrow from Beyonce) drunk in love, so I thought the way it was told suited them.

The way Lennie’s entire story is told is really what stood out to me most, although it may not be for everyone. I loved the way the whole thing is tinged if not overflowing with sadness yet there’s this sort of whimsy to the storytelling as well, with Lennie’s poems written on any and every surface, the taste of ashes in grandma’s cooking, characters hanging about in trees, the plant echoing Lennie’s state of mind, etc. I also loved the originality, several times there were descriptions that seemed so unusual and unexpected yet at the same time, they’re somehow perfectly true, capturing the moment, capturing the feeling.

This book didn't work for me. It could be the infidelity built inextricably into the love triangle plot. It could also be the (probably realistic) teenagerness of the main character. I skipped ahead after about 75 pages to see if it would be worth finishing, and reading the last 20 pages of the book convinced me that it wouldn't.

(I have to admit that the protagonist also lost some appeal to me due to her love of Wuthering Heights, a book I find intolerable. Why do so many YA heroines read only classic novels?) ( )

It's a YA... but I do like to read YA every now and again. Charming story of a bookworm/band geek trying to figure herself out now that her sister is gone ... nice love story with a look at grief and sisters and being a teenager. ( )

The sky is everywhere is a very emotional read. I had to put this book down more than I would like to admit. Everyone has losses in their lives. For me it was a difficult book to read because I suffered a lot of loss and short amount of time. The way Miss Nelson handled the grief in this story is nothing less than brilliant. its some point in the story you just wanted to take Leenie and shake her. but on the other hand emotion and grief or just make you do stupid and dare I say inappropriate things. Grief can make you strike out to the ones you love most. All in all it is a very uplifting sorry. ( )

Gram is worried about me. Its not because my sister Bailey died four weeks ago, or because my mother hasnt contacted me in sixteen years, or even because suddenly all i think about is sex. She is worried about me because one of her houseplants has spots.
