The Sky Is Everywhere

On this first snow of the season, I thought it was the perfect day to cozy up in the heat and read. And if you're looking for something new, why not check out (two!) book trailers for one of my favorite books of the year: The Sky Is Everywhere, by Jandy Nelson.

In the book, seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, is deeply affected by the sudden death of her big sister, Bailey. As she attempts to cope, Lennie finds herself in a series of interesting situations, including unresolved feelings and curiosity about her absentee mother, a reluctance to box up her sister's things, guilt, drama in band, conflict with Gram, awkwardness with her best friend, Sarah, and most prominently, a struggle to balance two boys, despite her nonexistent relationship history.

Watch these amazing trailers to find out more:
