Description

Adrift after her sister Bailey's sudden death, Lennie finds herself torn between quiet, seductive Toby—Bailey's boyfriend who shares her grief—and Joe, the new boy in town who bursts with life and musical genius. Each offers Lennie something she desperately needs... though she knows if the two of them collide her whole world will explode.

Join Lennie on this heartbreaking and hilarious journey of profound sorrow and mad love, as she makes colossal mistakes and colossal discoveries, as she traipses through band rooms and forest bedrooms and ultimately right into your heart.

As much a celebration of love as a poignant portrait of loss, Lennie's struggle to sort her own melody out of the noise around her is always honest, often uproarious, and absolutely unforgettable.

Publishers Weekly Review

Feb 22, 2010 – When Lennie's older sister dies suddenly, she is devastated, but she also starts realizing she no longer has to be the “companion pony” to the “thoroughbred” that was her dazzling sister. Living her own life proves difficult, however, both because it “doesn't seem right that anything good should come out of Bailey's death” and because of complications that arise when she falls in love with a talented musician in the school band. This honest, complex debut is distinguished by a dreamy California setting and poetic images that will draw readers into Lennie's world, particularly in the notes Lennie writes about life with her sister on bits of paper and even trees (“I button one of her frilly shirts/ over my own T-shirt./ ....I always feel better then,/ like she's holding me”). The author perhaps creates a few too many vibrant characters and plot points (Lennie also searches for her missing mom and discovers secrets Bailey was hiding). Even so, readers will be moved by Lennie's ability to admit to even some of her most unpleasant feelings and motivations, and her growing willingness to live “full blast.” Ages 14–up.

Awesome!!!!

Loved this book!!

AMAZING

I absolutely loved this book. This past summer I read Sarah Dessen's The Truth about Forever and thought I had found my ultimate favorite but no. This one tops ANY Sarah Dessen I've read. And that is saying something because sarah Dessen is absolutely incredibly...anyway! The book will have you crying, laughing, and smiling the entire time you read it. You will not be able to put it down. I was also impressed to learn this was Jandy Nelson's first novel. Great author with a great plot. Favorite quote from the book: "Our tongues have fallen madly in love and gotten married and moved to Paris." :)

This has been my favorite book for quite some time and I would recommend it to anyone!
