Publisher Description

This brilliant, New York Times bestselling novel from the author of the Newbery Medal winner When You Reach Me explores multiple perspectives on the bonds and limits of friendship.
 
Long ago, best friends Bridge, Emily, and Tab made a pact: no fighting. But it’s the start of seventh grade, and everything is changing. Emily’s new curves are attracting attention, and Tab is suddenly a member of the Human Rights Club. And then there’s Bridge. She’s started wearing cat ears and is the only one who’s still tempted to draw funny cartoons on her homework.
 
It’s also the beginning of seventh grade for Sherm Russo. He wonders: what does it mean to fall for a girl—as a friend?
 
By the time Valentine’s Day approaches, the girls have begun to question the bonds—and the limits—of friendship. Can they grow up without growing apart?
 
“Sensitively explores togetherness, aloneness, betrayal and love.” —The New York Times

Loved Goodbye StrNger!

Loved this book! Tina Wexler suggested it to me after I asked a question about agent/publisher views on multiple POV. Honestly, I struggled with the bouncing POV a little in the first third of the book, but it wasn't just because of the POV, but it was because one was masked until late in the story. I didn't understand that it was DELIBERATELY masked for a while. I thought I had missed something. If I had picked it up in the bookstore. without a recommendation or previous reads from the author, I am not sure I would have made it to the register due to the confusion. However, it's a great read, so real and relatable, and full of love, redemption, and wisdom. One of my favorite takeaways is when Celeste said (paraphrasing). " Who am I really? Am I the person who did something horrible, or am I the person who feels horrible about an awful thing I have done. And does one side of me have permission to forgive the other side ?"
