The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

The Sky Is EverywhereThe Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I've been hearing good things about this book and was not disappointed. It did take me a little while to feel like I was getting to know Lennie, the protagonist. It also felt like the author didn't really hit her stride until the middle of the book. I enjoyed the eccentricity of Lennie's family, and after I got used to it, the eccentricity of Lennie's narration. There were some parts that I felt the writing wasn't that great, and then suddenly there would be an amazing line. (One of the down sides of reading books on my Nook: it is hard for me to thumb back through to locate those passages that made me say, 'Cool sentence!' Maybe I should have written it down...)
