"Tough stories but great book"
Not your everyday coming-of-age novel. This story was supposed to be about Evie - how she hasn't made a friend in years, how she tends to stretch the truth (especially about her so-called relationship with college drop-out Jonah Luks), and how she finally comes into her own once she learns to just be herself. But it isn't. Because when her classmate Elizabeth "Zabet" McCabe's murdered body is found in the woods, everything changes and Evie's life is never the same again.
"A Misfit with a Mystery on Her Hands"
Journey of the Heart is book written by Katie Williams who was 16 when she lost her 17-year-old brother to suicide. It is the journal she kept after he died. This is not a book that seeks to answer the medical or psychological questions surrounding suicide. This is a close personal look at one person's journey of what someone goes through after losing a loved one to suicide. The purpose of the book is to comfort and show others that they are not alone and there is hope to continue living even after such a tragedy.
