The Sky Is Everywhere



Once in a while, I love to check out Young Adult books.  After this one that I just finished, I think I might do that more often.  I don’t remember from where, how or when I first heard about The Sky Is Everywhere (by Jandy Nelson). I don’t even remember reserving it at the library, but apparently I did, because I’d received a collection notice for the book.  As soon as I started it, I was hooked.  I brought it along with me wherever I went and would pull it out to read whenever I had the chance –while waiting in the car to pick up the kids, while on the train, while on the bus.  I didn’t care that others would see me chuckle to myself or wipe tears from my face.  I love the quirky little poems and also how they’re scattered and “found” throughout the book.  I love the cool dorkiness.  If you want a great read, definitely check out The Sky Is Everywhere .

I haven't heard of this title, but we sure do love a good book that the kids can freely read. We will check it out. Thanks!

I don't think there is anything wrong with reading something perhaps a little less intense or "grown-up". Over the years I read nearly every reading assignment book given to my children - from the juvenile to the "serious literature"; on many I suspect I enjoyed them just as much as the kids.

Great street shot and thanks for the tip.

Gorgeous shot, I love read too. I generally go through a book a week and sometimes I dip into the young adult. I'll have to check this one out.

Good capture of the man on his bike. I wonder if he's deep into his thoughts and enjoying nature.

I'll put the book on my list. Not much of a YA reader, but might suggest it for my daughters. One of them might breeze through it and then tell me that I've "got" to read it! :) I'm glad you like it. Nothing like reading a good, page-turning book!
