THE SURVIVAL KIT, by Donna Frietas

survival kit

The story: Rose’s mother has died, and it seems like a part of Rose died with her.  The high-school senior just can’t get interested in school, life, or even her longtime boyfriend. But when she discovers a “survival kit” that her mother made for her, with little gifts to help her deal with her loss, Rose begins a gradual return to life.  And it doesn’t hurt that Will, the hunky guy who does their yardwork, knows what she’s going through…and what to do to help her most.

Mrs. Friend says: If you like this one, make sure to check out Ms. Frietas’s other book, THE POSSIBILITY OF SAINTHOOD–another fun read.
