Wintergirls by the prolific Laurie Halse Anderson.  This time the story is of two girls struggling with anorexia.  How does Anderson keep coming up with these provocative books??? This is for sure a MUST READ!  I’d say pair it with Donna Cooner’s Skinny.

Where she Went by Gayle Foreman is the follow up to If I Stay a love story which ultimately, ends (that’s not a spoiler is it?).  Where she went is the followup told from the male character’s perspective.  Interesting, no?  Yes.

Have you read anything by thee authors?

The book I’d like to share with you today is Just One Day by Gayle Forman.  From Goodreads:

When sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

 

Unconventional Librarian Gayle Forman

Author Gayle Forman came to the bookstore where I work one evening and I had the chance to listen to her talk about her books including If I Stay.
