These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

Jane In Bloom, Deborah Lytton

Publishers copy:
Jane's big sister, Lizzie, has always been the center of attention.  No one ever pays attention to boring, plain Jane.  But Jane's twelfth birthday markd the beginning of Lizzie's final descent into a fatal eating disorder, and Jane discovers that the only thing harder than living in her big sister's shadow is living without her...

In the wak of tragedy, Jane learns to look through her camera lnes and frame life differently, embracing her broken family and understanding that every girl has her season to blossom.

My review:
This book is described as spare and vulnerable and I think that those are two very apt adjectives.  This little book packs a bigger punch than the reader sees coming and the subject of losing and then finding one's family is handled masterfully.
