her sister dies.
Man, I really need to re-read this book! It’s been at least 15 years since I last re-read it. I don’t know it I want to. Ever since we had our first son, and he died, I’ve been really sensitive to books where children and young people die.
And yes, this book is completely superior to Lurlene McDaniel books . . . of which I was a fan as a pre-teen and young teen. Yes, as a youth librarian, I have continued to read most of them. I can’t see I’ve liked them all. They never made me cry like A Summer to Die made me cry. Therefore Ms. Lowery’s book is definitely superior.
