Sydney has a problem. She's pregnant.

Being pregnant at sixteen years is definitely not ideal, but what can Sydney do? She knows she will not marry the baby's father because that is unrealistic and it will not work out. Keeping it quiet from her parents, she is unsure what to do in this situation. Her father sends her up north to Canada so she can join a canoeing camp that will help her learn something new and be away from the technological world today.

Surrounded by Canadian wilderness, Sydney interacts with new people and learn new things from the practical to the personal.

Every Little Thing in the World is now one of my favourite releases of 2010! It gave me a break from the usual novels that go around the cliche plots and added a flavourful variety into the YA section of the bookstore.

Sydney is a commonsensical girl who does not delude herself in any way and does not mope over the fact that she is pregnant. Instead of being depressed, she takes the opportunity of the camp to enjoy her life differently. I love how the author have such indivualistic characters surrounding Sydney. Flaws are pointed out as well as the greater aspects for each character. The interaction between Sydney and everyone else is fantastic, like a well-balanced meal that is nutritious and delicious at the same time. She is able to learn more about herself and her best friend, Natalia, with the time they are in Canada. Readers will see a strong character development and will enjoy the fact that the novel is very relatable in many aspects.

After reading this novel, I urge to go on a canoe camp too. It sounds exhausting but fun at the same time! Creative, realistic, and rapturing, Every Little Thing in the World is a must-read!
