Teaser Tuesday (1)

Ok, so this is a writing blog, yet I get much of my insight from reading, so why not give credit to books?!? Thanks to MizB from Should Be Reading for hosting this wonderful meme.
So here goes. My first official meme that I did not create. I am a follower! =)

Now I am reading The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. It is an amazing book! To find out more, and to see the convincing post by my best friend that led me to read it, click here.
And now, the teaser:
"I start to think about all the things I haven't said since Bailey died, all the words stowed deep in my heart, in our orange bedroom, all the words in the whole world that aren't said after someone dies because they are too sad, too enraged, too devastated, too guilty, to come out-all of them begin to course inside me like a lunatic river. "

That is one of the more saddened parts of the book. There are many happy parts and also very sad parts. All of it is deep and emotional and intense. Definitely on my top list of "to-read" books.
