{Flashback Friday} The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson (9)

Flashback Friday on Swoony Boys Podcast featuring The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

It’s time for Flashback Friday, where we feature a book that’s at least two years old. They could be books we’ve read and loved or books we need to jump on.

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

Published on 3/9/2010 by Dial

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.

This remarkable debut is perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Francesca Lia Block. Just as much a celebration of love as it is a portrait of loss, Lennie’s struggle to sort her own melody out of the noise around her is always honest, often hilarious, and ultimately unforgettable.

Ah, Joe Fontaine! *bat*bat*bat* Let us count the ways that we love you so. This is truly a must read and will always be one of our favorites.

  1. I’ve heard of that book before, but I never read it because I could sense I would be walking into a love triangle fiasco. I’m glad you liked it though! 🙂
