    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed laughing out loud too many times to count.


    What does Chelsea Handler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Comic timing, sarcasm.

    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.

    Pilot Chase says: "Wow."
    "Deliciously Melancholy"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Sky is Everywhere in three words, what would they be?

    Moving, eloquent, entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gram was a favorite of mine. Seeing her from the teenage perspective was interesting as her story unfolded with the main character's understanding of her.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very moving. Even with the difficult subject matter, it was brilliant and beautiful to listen to. I will never forget this book. The author's prose accurately depicts the feeling of losing a young person who you are very close to, all while life moves on.
