A heartwarming and emotional story about grief and coping with loss. Fiction debut from picture book author Suzi Moore.
Secrets uncovered, mysteries unraveled, and a friendship to last forever. This is a story about grief, friendship, and identity.
One year ago, Emma’s twin sister, Laura, died at their birthday party, and since then Emma’s life has not been the same. Without her louder and stronger sister, Emma starts to feel lonely and invisible, missing the one person that she could always rely on to be at her side. Then she meets Lexi and everything changes.
Lexi is wild, crazy, and surrounded by mystery, and Emma quickly finds herself pulled into the orbit of “Lexiland,” a place where it seems like anything can happen. And, as their friendship grows, Emma starts to realize that letting someone new into your life can be the best way to mend a broken heart…
