Book Review: Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

 

 

 

 

 

This book is about a depressed mother who has recently gone through a divorce. She has escaped with her daughter to New Hampshire for a “summer vacation.” While there, her daughter finds out she can’t take care of her mother and herself. Thsi book is very well written and keeps the pages turning and keeps you guessing. There was nothing I didn’t like about it. The format is a poem style, which is perfect because it makes you turn page after page. Great book!

Book Review: How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr

Image

This book is about two teens, Mandy and Jill. They each have their own perspective. Jill is a senior in high school who lives with her mom and her dad has dies in a car accident. Mandy is a 19 year old who has recently become pregnant. She was raised by her mother and has had a rough childhood. Jill’s mother wants to adopt Mandy’s baby.

There is a lot of conflict throughout the book to keep you interested. Though I don’t find that the cover design directly related to the book, there was nothing I didn’t like about it — amazing book!
