Selena Gomez is planning a leading role in an upcoming adaptation of Jandy Nelson’s The Sky is Everywhere, Deadline reports. The book, released in 2010, is officially described as follows:
Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, 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 lifeand, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they’re the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can’t collide without the whole wide world exploding.
Gomez recently ended her popular television series, “The Wizards of Waverly Place” after a four-season run. In addition to her work in the music industry, Gomez has appeared on the big screen in films like Ramona and Beezus and Monte Carlo.
