Publisher's Summary

Nanette O'Hare is an unassuming teen who has played the role of dutiful daughter, hardworking student, and star athlete for as long as she can remember. But when a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bugglegum Reaper - a mysterious, out-of-print cult classic - the rebel within Nanette awakens.
As she befriends the reclusive author, falls in love with a young but troubled poet, and attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion sometimes comes at a high price.
A celebration of the self and the formidable power of story, Every Exquisite Thing is Matthew Quick at his finest.

Good book

There's a lot of me in Nanette O'Hare....brings back all sorts of emotions from high school. I think about my 12 year old daughter as she enters JR high and high school years to follow. His story & characters are ALWAYS so corky & out THERE!! This is my 5 read novel my Matthew Quick!
