The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Lennie's sister, Bailey, dies suddenly, Lennie tries to make sense of a world that that was once safe and secure,to a world where she, her Gram and Big exist but don't talk. Lennie has never been popular, just a band geek who plays 2nd chair clarinet but with the loss of Bailey, Lennie now surprsingly finds comfort in the arms of Bailey's boyfriend, Toby (they both connect in their loss) and in the new boy, Joe Fontaine, an awesome trumpet player who visits her house everyday, bringing comfort to Gram, Big and Lennie, dragging them back into life. How can these two guys help Lennie believe that life can go on without Bailey and that Bailey will still be everywhere, like the sky is everywhere?
