Yup, the Summer 'I'm Boreds' are not too far from being heard!

So here is today's first entry, in keeping the older teens busy...

Synopsis:


Secrets are con artists: they trick you into letting them out. 


Sadie loves her rocker boyfriend Henry and her running partner and best friend Lucie, but no one can measure up to her truest love and hero, the dazzling and passionate George. George, her secret. 



When something goes wrong and Sadie is taken to the hospital calling out for George, her hidden life may be exposed. Now she must confront the truth of the past, and protect a world she is terrified to lose.


Review:

What if the secret world that helped you 'keep things together' was suddenly exposed? Could you explain it? Or would you be thought to be 'hearing voices' and crazy? Although this is a book for YA readers, I think it's a wonderful book for all parents to read as well. The book does a great job in showing how kids' minds help them cope, and how sometimes those coping mechanisms seem SO much better than the real, harsher world. getting kids to find the middle- to find the support they need, to recover at their own rate, is a fine line. This book does an excellent job in taking what might seem abnormal, and making it not only understandable, but one that might tear you up a bit. It would be a super Summer read for older teens, as it would allow plenty of discussion with parents, at a time when they need it most!
