When Friendship Followed Me Home

November 5th, 2019 - Posted in Library News -

by Paul Griffin, 247 pages, Grades 6 and up

“Never let the hill slow you down, Traveler.” This is something Ben’s mom would have said to help him get through difficult times. The trouble is, this hill might just be too steep. Ben is moving in with his aunt and uncle after his mom died; how can he feel “at home” in a place that has never been his home. At least he has Flip and Rainbow girl in his life. Flip is his little dog he can carry around in his backpack, and Rainbow Girl is a new friend who is trying to convince him to help her write a novel. Maybe friendship is just the thing to help him up this hill of troubles.

If you like books about kids overcoming adversity, you might also like: Waiting for Normal, by Leslie Connor, Counting by 7s, by Holly Goldberg Sloan, or The Boy in the Black Suit, by Jason Reynolds.
