This weekend's book is a mixture of hope and love, angst and heartache. If you've ever read a book by Sara Zarr, you know she is incredibly good at writing the teen heart and all the hardships it can go through. In How to Save a Life:
Told from their own viewpoints, seventeen-year-old
Jill, in grief over the loss of her father, and Mandy, nearly nineteen,
are thrown together when Jill's mother agrees to adopt Mandy's unborn
child but nothing turns out as they had anticipated.
Drama potential? Unlimited. Emotional read potential? Great. How good is this book? You tell me.
If you would like a lovely brand new hard copy of this book to keep and love forever, write about something that turned out completely different than you expected.
