Hey everyone, hope you guys are having a wonderful day.The weather has been so nice lately(hope I didn't jinx it)
Ever since school started I haven't had much time to read so all the books I want to read have been out for a while probably.
But I am waiting until this up and coming holiday to read How to Save a Life, by Sara Zarr. (Goodreads)
Synopsis by goodreads:
Jill MacSweeney just wants everything to go back to normal. But ever since her dad died, she's been isolating herself from her boyfriend, her best friends--everyone who wants to support her. You can't lose one family member and simply replace him with a new one, and when her mom decides to adopt a baby, that's exactly what it feels like she's trying to do. And that's decidedly not normal. With her world crumbling around her, can Jill come to embrace a new member of the family?
Mandy Kalinowski knows what it's like to grow up unwanted--to be raised by a mother who never intended to have a child. So when Mandy becomes pregnant, she knows she wants a better life for her baby. But can giving up a child be as easy as it seems? And will she ever be able to find someone to care for her, too?
Critically acclaimed author and National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr delivers a heart-wrenching story, told from dual perspectives, about what it means to be a family and the many roads we can take to become one.
- well that is all for today. Goodbye everyone!!! :D
