Life As It Comes by Anne Larue Bondoux
Bondoux's novels are all different but equally engaging and spectacularly written. In her newest book, the reader meets 15 year old Mado who is mature beyond her years. When her parents suddenly die in a car accident, (not giving anything away, we learn that in the first few pages) her irresponsible 20 year old sister Patty assumes guardianship. Patty has many issues and circumstances that affect Mado. While I enjoyed this novel, I don't think it has the same quality as her earlier works. Also, the setting is France which may not appeal to some teens.
I am maybe on this one.
