Speed of Life

September 27th, 2017 - Posted in Library News -

speed of lifeby Carol Weston, 329 pages, Grades 7 and up

Sofia’s mom died almost a year ago, but it is still hurts. Everyone would expect losing a parent to hurt for a long time, but Sofia also feels like this event has re-written her whole identity. She is “the girl whose mom died” to everyone around her and that makes it even harder to move through the world. She finally finds some help when she writes to the Fifteen Magazine advice column “Dear Kate” and gets an immediate answer. Sofia really values Kate’s advice and the anonymity makes it easy for her to bare her soul, but then one day she finds her sitting at her kitchen table and finds out she’s dating her dad!
