For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high-school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she'd moved beyond-even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.
I’ve been desperate for this book ever since I heard about it. The premise sounds so original: it deals with grief from the perspective of teen widows. Is it weird and wrong that I hope it includes the perspective of a teen whose husband went to war? I feel like that’s a story I want to read in YA. I’m not usually into super mopey books, but I think we could all learn a lot from the women in this book.
