And We Stay
By Jenny Hubbard
Release Date: January 28, 2014Summary: When high school senior Paul Wagoner walks into his school library with a stolen gun, he threatens his girlfriend Emily Beam, then takes his own life. In the wake of the tragedy, an angry and guilt-ridden Emily is shipped off to boarding school in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she encounters a ghostly presence who shares her name. The spirit of Emily Dickinson and two quirky girls offer helping hands, but it is up to Emily to heal her own damaged self.
This inventive story, told in verse and in prose, paints the aftermath of tragedy as a landscape where there is good behind the bad, hope inside the despair, and springtime under the snow.
Wow, does this one sound serious or what? But knowing Jenny Hubbard's previous books, it's bound to be emotional and amazing. And it's told in verse and prose? I wonder how that's going to turn out! All I know is that I better be in the mood for a serious book before I read this one. And to be prepared to hopefully love it!
