Teen Read Month Special: Our Favorites - Please Ignore Vera Dietz

Today's featured Teen Read Month favorite is from Lisa at the Edmonds Library who really enjoyed Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King:

"Not just another my best friend that I was secretly in love with is dead books. Vera is a wonderfully real main character; she is awesome, but she is also full of flaws. She loves her dead best friend, except he went and ruined everything. So maybe she hates him, too. She gets through her days by following two survival rules :
1. Ignore every messed up thing in this life
2. Be ignored
Trouble is, her problems keep multiplying and ignoring them isn’t helping.  This is a funny and heartbreaking book about friendship, guilt, speaking out and rising above your circumstances.  And did I mention the talking pagoda?"

If you like heartbreaking books like this, you might enjoy titles from our Tearjerkers: Books to Make You Cry booklist, too.
