And did it all have to be made to look attractive and inviting? She and her friends have no qualms about drinking, partying, and “borrowing cars,” but maybe that’s the point. Photograph by Paul Blackmore.

Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont – Review | BookPage
Better than average, but not extraordinary. Sydney’s turmoil about the pregnancy she’s kept it from her parents and plans to have an abortion when she returns is realistic and well plotted; she faces added pressure from Natalia who, after revelations about her own birth circumstances, partly sees herself in Sydney’s baby. In that nanosecond it takes for a mirror to give our faces back to us our mind has already done all sorts of perverse rearranging.
Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. And while I do feel that she could have handled some of the situations differently, I still admire her for doing what was right for her in the end, not leaving others to influence her decision.
In the wilds of Canada, where the girls are to spend the next four weeks canoeing, camping liftle foraging for food, time is ticking, because Sydney isn’t sure what she wants to do about her pregnancy.
I liked how Sydney grew a lot from beginning to end of the book but none of it was cheesy or rushed. But in a way, I couldn’t stand it.
I was actually pretty excited to read this one. This was a really pointless story in my opinion.
Every Little Thing in the World
Whatever happened to taking responsibility for your actions? Then there was her trying to influence Sidney on the big decision. The female counselor becomes frustrated and tje, “Boys in the back, girls in the front! Dont have sex, if your not ready for a baby. The kids go cliff diving without PFDs.
LibrisNotes: Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont
The descriptions of the Canadian summer made me wish I was there now. The lake is always calm, “rowing” is always easy. Now there’s just something about when I think of it, gramonr feels totally and completely wrong. Mick is frightening and obnoxious, yet capable of genuine support for Sydney, and, whether she likes it or not, ljttle matters to her.
None of us really knows what we look like after all. She found out a lot about herself as well. Third, the action is unpredictable — so refreshing in a YA novel!
Sid almost drowns because her camp counselors encourage her to slide down a stream leading to a waterfall without a PFD. YA Bliss rated it liked it Shelves:
