July #DoubleSpin @TheAromaofBooks It has religious content which is not my thing but it was so beautiful that it didn't bother me. Narrated by Serenity, a 13 y/o girl (beautiful name) and how she and her brother coped with grief and many changes in their lives. I wish many children could have the support she & her brother had: their lovely grandparents, friends, family, church, school. It discusses domestic violence and abuse. Love the cover 4.5âï¸
Great read, and great first novel. Heavy material of abuse and violence explored through the lens of a 13 y.o. Perfect for youth, and an important read on building healthy relationships, knowing which secrets to keep (and which not to), and how to address the idea that "life is unfair" (and thus, worth giving up on). Could also be a Christian youth club read--every chapter takes a line from the Lord's Prayer. Happy to have found this author!
