Word for Word and Teenquake present:THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE by Jandy Nelson
Word for Word brings to life selections from The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, is catapulted to center stage of her own life when her older sister dies unexpectedly and Lennie, whose history with boys is nonexistent, finds herself trying to balance two of them. Lennie’s struggle to sort her own melody out of the noise around her is honest, hilarious, and ultimately unforgettable. The Los Angeles Times says, “Jandy Nelson has cast the intensity of first love together with the intensity of grief to produce a novel that is unusually rich with both insight and breathless romance.” Author Jandy Nelson will be present for a post-show conversation with the audience.
