I am about to make a very radical statement.

I discovered my favourite book of all time. (ok, well, it's in the top three)

The book that makes me want to quit writing because I know I can’t write like that.

The book I couldn’t put down, but never wanted to read because I wanted it to last forever.

The book that wouldn’t let me read another book for a week after because it was still resonating.

The book where I started marking my favourite lines, but realised there were way too many of them to ever keep track of.

The book I wanted to reread IMMEDIATELY after finishing it.

The book I WISH I wrote myself.

The book I love so much, that I don’t want anyone else to read because I want it to just be mine. But at the same time, I want everyone to read it because it’s. just. so. fabulous.

Honestly, I have no critique of this book. It hit all the right spots. 

Has anyone read a book like this??

Goodreads says about The Sky is Everywhere:

"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."
