Every Exquisite Thing
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Nanette O'Hare is an unassuming teen who has played the role of dutiful daughter, hardworking student, and star athlete for as long as she can remember. But when a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bubblegum Reaper--a mysterious, out-of-print cult classic--the rebel within Nanette awakens.
As she befriends the reclusive author, falls in love with a young but troubled poet, and attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion sometimes comes at a high price.
A celebration of the self and the formidable power of story, Every Exquisite Thing is Matthew Quick at his finest.

There is something beautiful in this book that stays with you for a long time after you've touched the last page. Nanette, Alex, and Wrigley are just names now as you read this review, but Matthew Quick has the strangely wonderful ability to write people. Real lovely people who become your friends no matter how one sided the conversation is. He has the ability to understand humanness in a way that gives me hope for the rest of us.
