Jandy Nelson to adapt her own book THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE

The author of THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE should be really happy with who Warner Bros. picked to write the screenplay. 

Warner Bros. optioned the rights to the YA novel The Sky is Everywhere about a year and a half ago. However, they hadn’t signed on anyone to write the screenplay yet. Not until just recently, as it was announced that the author herself, Jandy Nelson, has been assigned the task.

Naturally, Nelson is ecstatic about this and there is no one more knowledgeable about the story and the characters than Jandy.

Here’s the synopsis:

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 sister Bailey.  But when Bailey dies suddenly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life—and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, 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.  For Lennie, they’re the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it.  But just like their celestial counterparts, they can’t collide without the whole wide world exploding.

The rights to Jandy’s second novel, I’ll Give You the Sun, was also picked up by Warner Bros., but there hasn’t been any news yet on who’ll be adapting that book for film.
