Every Exquisite Thing

Every Exquisite Thing - Matthew Quick

What I liked most about this novel is when Nanette finally begins to stand on her own two feet. She has always done what is right, been the perfect person and done what is expected of her. But when Nanette is given a novel by her teacher, this novel changes something inside her. The novel, The Bubblegum Reaper, was an older novel which Nanette instantly falls in love with. Her enthusiasm and passion for this novel was understood and appreciated, as I have felt the same way for a few novels that I have read. Reaching out to the author, Nanette wants answers to the questions that she has pertaining to the book but the author is reluctant to discuss the novel. Nanette does not back down and I enjoyed Nanette persistent probing and inquiring of the author over this novel. If I were in Nanette shoes, I don’t’ think I would be able to walk away either without giving it my all. It’s funny but as Nanette mentions the book, how many people have read it which leads to many discussions. These characters help her discover how to unlock her true identity, some of them just by who they are.
