'The Sky is Everywhere' for Selena Gomez

'The Sky is Everywhere' for Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is pulling another novel under her July Moon Productions umbrella.

The 19-year-old actress/musician has optioned “The Sky Is Everywhere” by Jandy Nelson, Deadline reports.

Selena will play Lennie in the book to screen adaption.

The Sky is Everywhere” is about Lennie Walker, a 17-year-old bookworm and band geek who plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey.

But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life – and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby — Bailey’s grieving boyfriend; and Joe, the new boy in town from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent.

Selena also has Jay Asher‘s “13 Reasons Why” to film.

    The storyline sounds pretty good. Can wait for her to be in some new movies.

    I am devastated to hear this. The Sky is Everywhere is my favourite book and Selena Gomez couldn’t be any more wrong for the part. So upset.

  • Candace

    Yes! I’m so happy for Selena. I haven’t heard of this book before but it sounds interesting, I’ll buy it sometime next week. I want to watch the movies she’ll be in already!!

  • kate


    same here! it’s going to get ruined like twilight was… I love selena but she’s not Lennie.

  • smodi

    Sigh. I love Selena, I really do.
    But she’s not Lennie. By a long shot.
    And now people are going to read the book for all the wrong reasons. Which is upsetting because the book is absolutely phenomenal.
    Pleased don’t.


    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I LOVE The sky is everywhere, I can’t even remember how many times I’ve read it. I really really hate Selena as Lennie!! It’s just wrong. I like Selena but this I can’t agree with


    Attention haters: You’re talking but all I hear is Wah Wah Wah!

  • javi

    she hasn’t film it yet and you haters are judging with out even seen the movie.this is what happens when people are jealous,envious or even racist i like this girl I’m going to give her a chance until the movie comes out. but judging her on this because you don’t like her is stupid wait until the movie is done and you can judge.

    @javi: What does jealousy have to do with anything? From the comments, it seems pretty fair. Since it’s based off a book, there is obviously going to be some criticism with an actor/actress playing the main character. People who criticize it are not jealous. I don’t understand why everyone has to play the jealousy card when it comes to famous people.

    the storyline sounds pretty good :)


  • meh

    @javi: Nobody hated on Selena. Actually, everyone said quite the opposite. We just don’t want her for this part.


    @Naomi finally someone who have realistic mind , it was criticism not jealously idk why people nowdays think we’re jealous of them lol ..

    Not everyone is going to be pleased but at least I am! Ha. I LOVE this book and I think it is good that more people are finding out about it. If more people read it and end up loving the book then that’s great. I do not think of it as if it is being read for “the wrong reasons”. As long as people enjoy it I think Jandy Nelson will be happy. I am so happy that this is going to be a movie!!! I cannot wait to see how it turns out!!! :D

    Congrats Selly!

  • Naomi

    @#THEFACTS: Exactly! Thank you. Finally, someone actually agrees with me on this.

    No! I love that book I don’t think selena’s right for it. Don’t get me wrong I love selena it just doesnt go well ..

  • jenny

    you guys are so dumb!! selena is a actress!! it is her job to act like lennie!! selena is a amazing actress!! she is going to great!

  • Rachel

    I agree I don’t think selena is right for the part. I just don’t think Selena can act the part of a normal or geeky girl. My friend read the book and said that Selena just wouldn’t fit Lennie’s character but if she does film it for the fans of the book I hope she does good
