    Molly Allen lives alone in Portland, but her heart is back in Franklin, Tennessee, where five years ago she walked away from a man she cannot forget, a rare sort of love she hasn’t found since. Ryan Kelly lives in Franklin and spends plenty of time at The Bridge - the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin - remembering the long hours he and Kelly once spent there. Now, Ryan and Molly’s favorite bookstore is in trouble....

    What did you love best about The Bridge?

    The relationship between the main characters was hopelessly romantic.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Christmas Miracle scene was very powerful.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    My favorite part of the book was when the main characters shared their first kiss together.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt like the ending was rushed, but it was still worth the read.

    Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew - just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend.

    Overall

    I am a 27 year old woman and just got back into YA lit recently. I am so glad I bought this book as it is a moving coming of age story dealing with issues of family, death, love, guilt and friendships. It has really great music references as well. At the least I want a sequel and a movie version!! After reading this I am a fan of Matson's for life and can't wait to read more of her work.

    Two girls who grow up to become women...two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret.

    Morrison's tone is soothing and beautifully, poetically just. I strongly recommend this reading of it.
