SPEED OF LIFE by Carol Weston
Sofia lost her mother eight months ago, and her friends were 100% there for her. Now it's a new year and they're ready for Sofia to move on. This book was a delightful read. Told from the perspective of a naive teenage girl who has just lost her mother.. The book is well-written and heart-warming
The story unfolds as the main character, Sofia, deals with her father's new relationship and her friends moving on with their lives while she feels stuck in sadness and grief. I would recommend this story to any teenager as a good coming-of-age story with a delightful twist!
SPEED OF LIFE, is the heartbreaking, heartwarming story of a girl who thinks her life is over when really it's just beginning. It's a novel about love, family, grief, and growing up.
"A wonderful book that takes us from loss to laughter." --Richard Peck, author of The Best Man and Newbery Gold Medalist A Year Down Yonder
"You won't want to put it down. But my advice is slow down and savor this delightful book, full of carino, funny and heartfelt, and (spoiler alert) not just for teens." --Julia Alvarez, author of In the Time of the Butterflies and Return to Sender
