Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Nanette O'Hare had it all - solid family, friends, star status as a soccer player, straight As - but something was missing. When Nanette is given a copy of an out-of-print, cult classic book, her inner-rebel is awakened and things are never the same.
Through zany friendships, reckless abandon, loss, and a little therapy, Nanette learns that her story is more than a sum of what's happened to her thus far, and she's willing to pay the price to push beyond everyone else's versions.
Through Nanette's unique voice, this tale of independence and voice will resonate with many teens (and adults!).
