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 .
