I want to read that...



Lost For Words by Alice Kuipers
Ever since Sophie Baxter’s sister was killed in the London terrorist bombings, she has retreated into herself. But there’s only so long she can keep everything bottled up inside before she explodes, and Sophie comes to realize that she must confront the horror of her past before she can face the future.

Up-and-coming talent Alice Kuipers lets her teen sensibility, humor, and fresh perspective shine in this remarkable story of family, hope, and perseverance in the face of tragedy.


I loved 'Life on the Refrigerator Door' - it was beautifully written - so I am really excited about this one. Another book that will probably make me cry! It's being published by Harperteen in Hardback in May. No UK date yet.

I so need to read Life on the Refrigerator Door. It has been recommended to me so many times. I just haven't got around to it. This sounds great too. I always wonder about the people who are left behind grieving after a terrorist attack. I mean you'd always wonder what your loved one was thinking in their last moments. Awesome pick!

I've never heard of this one, but I'm definitely liking the sound of it. I haven't read Life on the Refrigerator Door either, so maybe I need to fix that.
