Book Review #6
My rating: 3.5/5
‘Brimming with humour and life, full of music and the poems Lennie drops all over town, The Sky Is Everywhere explores betrayal and forgiveness through a vibrant cast of characters.’ SLJ
‘How grief and love run side by side is sensitively and intensely explored in this energetic, poetic and warm-blooded novel.’ THE GUARDIAN, UK
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 didn’t enjoy reading this book. I don’t find myself having the desire of continuing.
- I don’t find myself connecting with this book. For your information, I kinda have relationships with my books.
- If I were to find one of Lennie’s poem, I would find it extremely inspiring.
- I adore Lennie’s hanging out place in the woods where you can just be with nature and absolute peace. I think that everyone should have their own safe haven.
- It saddens me to read as Toby revealed that they were engaged and are expecting.
- Although it always end up when something heartbreaking breaks them up and soon one of them realizes that they are meant to be.
- So all in all, boy meets girl, girl meets boy, falls in love, break up, realizes that the other pair is their half, made up, professes their love of one another and finally, live happily ever after.
- I don’t highly recommend you guys to read this book.
