EVERY EXQUISITE THING by Matthew Quick tells the coming-of-age story of a young adult transformed by a cult classic.
When Nanette befriends the recluse author of a cult classic, she begins to see the world in new ways. She starts dating, quits the soccer team, and rebels against her stereotypical suburban life. However, rebellion can be costly. Quick’s engaging writing style immerses readers in Nanette’s voyage of self-discovery.
Librarians will find teens drawn into this well-written story that combines classic teen angst and rebellion with emerging confidence and courage. Fans of realistic fiction and topics such as mental health will be lining up for this one. English teachers will enjoy the references to poetry and literature.
