Every Shiny Thing

In this beautifully constructed middle-grade novel, told half in prose and half in verse, Lauren prides herself on being a good sister, and Sierra is used to taking care of her mom. When Laurens parents send her brother to a therapeutic boarding school for teens on the autism spectrum and Sierra moves to a foster home in Laurens wealthy neighborhood, both girls are lost until they find a deep bond with each other. But when Lauren recruits Sierra to help with a Robin Hood scheme to raise money for autistic kids who dont have her familys resources, Sierra has a lot to lose if the plan goes wrong. Lauren must learn that having good intentions isnt all that matters when you battle injustice, and Sierra needs to realize that sometimes, the person you need to take care of is yourself....

Every Shiny Thing Reviews

  • Kate Olson

    It is incredibly rare for me to say this, but this book did every. single. thing. right. If I were reviewing for a trade pub, I would recommend a star because this is my middle grade/middle school perfection. And to put it in perspective, this is the first MG title that has made me cry since I read THINGS THAT SURPRISE YOU by Jen Maschari back in August.....and I read a LOT of MG!

    EVERY SHINY THING nails it with the following things:

    E ARC from Netgalley.com

    Lauren is angry with her well-to-do parents because they have sent her brother Ryan, who is on the autism spectrum, off to a residential school. She misses him, and thinks her parents just got tired of dealing with Ryan's problems. She attends a private Quaker school that preaches simplicity even though most of the students are from very rich backgrounds and don't necessarily follow these teachings. Sierra's father is in jail, and her mother is an alcoholic who has finall

    I'm such a sucker for alternating POV books, and yet, I hold them to high standards. Both perspectives need to be equally compelling, both characters need to have equivalently high stakes and distinct interior worlds. EVERY SHINING THING gives us two characters from very different backgrounds. Lauren's family is affluent and stable, but her older autistic brother's departure for a special school several states away has left her unhinged. In his absence, she turns to a new, quickly developing, we ...more

    I'm a sucker for a middle-school friendship story, and this one really tugged at my heartstrings. The unique combo of prose and verse was beautifully wrought. Gorgeous contemporary MG!

  • Miriam McNamara

    Perfect alternating POV! The poetry made me cry, and the prose gave the story fantastic momentum. I don't always have trouble putting down a middle grade book, but this one kept me turning the pages. Love!

    Oh dang, this book went in so many directions and I loved it.

    Okay, so we’ve got two protagonists here: Lauren and Sierra. Lauren lives in a very affluent suburb, and as the story starts she and her parents are on the way home after dropping off her older brother Ryan at a special boarding school for autistic teens. Lauren’s not happy about that, because what was wrong with his old occupational therapist and how dare these people think they know how to care for her brother better than she does? A
