Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life – and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they’re the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can’t collide without the whole wide world exploding.

MY RATING: 5 Starts

MY OPINION:

Lennie Walker is a 17 years old girl who plays clarinet. Her bestfriend was her sister Bailey, but when she dies of a heart failure Lennie’s life becomes a confusion.
With the death of her sister, Lennie begins to approach the only one who seems to understand her – Bailey’s boyfriend (Toby).
Joe is a new boy in town, he has a musical talent (like Lennie) and he is from France. For Lennie they are “the sun and the moon”.
This story is about love, friendship, family…

I love this book on so many levels that I can’t even describe my feelings for it. It was so much information at the same time that I had to organize my thoughts (in a good way of course).
I read this book in one day, this is not a BIG book or a BIG story in terms of porpotion but it certainly is a BIG BIG BIG book in terms of content. I can honestly say that this was one of the best books I’ve ever read in my life and I know that I’m always saying this… but I swear that this is not my fault. Don’t judge me, judge the books or the authors, or something but me.

This book was so well written and goes so so well with the feelings of the characters that I honestly think that at some point I felt really bad for some other authors of young adult/contemporary romance.
“The Sky is Everywhere” made my heart ache, while I was reading the book I was so nervous… I was nervous not because I’m supid, I was nervous because I was expecting more and more and I wanted to know the end of the story, I wanted to know more about everything, I wanted the main characters to be together as everyone wants in every book.
