“One boy helps her remember. The other lets her forget.”
Lennie just lost her sister and her world is crashing around her. She doesn’t know how to behave, she doesn’t know what to do with her grief. There are also two guys that are making it complicated for her. There is Toby, Bailey’s boyfriend who is a both quiet and seduction. Then there is Joe, he’s the new guy in town, who always seems to be bursting with life, a smile on his face and a talented musician.
Each boy has its pros and cons, but what Lennie needs to realize is that Bailey is never coming back. Being with Toby makes her remember her sister and feel closer to her, but what kind of person does that make her? What kind of sister goes after her dead sisters boyfriend? Through trials and tribulations, Lennie must choose between the two boys before either of them find out about each other.
The Sky is Everywhere is a beautiful book. Lennie is a character that I won’t be able to forget for quite some time. The story grabbed a hold of me and held me captive the entire time I was reading it, and it is still with me. The writing itself is beautiful and unique and it showcases a vulnerability that just won’t let go.
I loved the characters. Lennie aka John Lennon, Joe, Big and Gram stood out the most. Lennie and Joe were my favorites though. One was so happy all the time while the other lost in a depression/grief so deep she didn’t know how to get out or what to do about it.
