Happy to be Alive, Because
When Avery loses her mom to cancer at 17, she embarks on a final adventure with her best friend-one that takes her to the beach town her mother grew up in. As Avery follows the plans her mom had for her on the trip, she makes friends and slowly learns to love live again. But, one of her new friends is keeping a secret. One that can change their friendship.
I love the concept of this book! Avery is armed with a journal to record why she is happy to be alive. I think it's a great idea! This book will leave you with a lot to think about. I know I came away realizing that each day is a gift and that we need to remind ourselves daily of those reasons that we are happy to be alive for.
So, why are you happy to be alive?:D
