I was given a free copy of this emotional roller coaster young adult novel which is about the suffering, loss of a loved one, and grief. When the main character, Mae McBride decides that her best friend is not her best friend any longer, the story shows us how they reunite in such a magical way.
What causes Mae and Heidi to have a departing conflict is the fact that when the house is caught on fire, Mae’s father saves Heidi’s life and dies a hero.
First off I can relate to having a loved one die, which many can who would read this book. The book shows the stages of grief among the character that are a reality and can be something I relate to as well as you.
NOTE: (My real mother died when I was five and she was 33), so I can really relate to all of the characters emotions in the stages of grief and loss.
Secondly, the story is short and easy to read in one sitting (105 pages total).
Thirdly, I could feel the emotions and the compassion in each character as true to life as well.
Fourthly, I think it would be easy to place blame on the “dead father” for saving Heidi. It is such a reality to envision this story as real. I also can see the two best friends take the stance they did in the story and then later realize the regret and silliness to only make up and become life time friends forever, learning from the experience.
This would be a great book for any age group but it is aimed towards young adults. If you decide to read this book please comment below of what you thought of it, thank you, © 2012 Jackie Paulson
