From Matthew Quick, author of best seller The Silver Linings Playbook, comes a heartfelt, unconventional and moving novel for readers who love John Green and Annabel Pitcher.
Nanette O'Hare is a modest teenager who has played the role of an obedient daughter, hard-working student and star athlete for as long as she can remember.
But when a beloved teacher gives her his worn-out copy of The Bubblegum Reaper - the mysterious and exhausted cult classic - the rebel inside Nanette wakes up.
While befriending the lonely author, falling in love with a young but troubled poetess and trying to insert herself into the world with a wild abandon, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion sometimes comes at a high price.
A celebration of himself and the formidable power of history, Every Exquisite Thing is Matthew Quick at his best.
