Today in Jen's Library

I listen to audiobooks while I flip houses. I also read real books which I buy incessantly.

The Sky is Everywhere - Jandy Nelson This book is absolutely delightful.

I laughed. I cried a bit. I laughed some more.

I loved the characters, all of them, and the honesty between them.

I loved all the wonderful word pictures. Call the literary devices what you will - it was beautifully done.

I loved the poems, the pieces of things she'd write (even though that did make her a little strange).

I'm looking forward to more from Jandy Nelson. I read a book by Sarah Dressen just after this and was left wanting - so formulaic, so cut out of a pattern - which this book is decidedly not. It is surprising and funny and warm and, well, delightful.
