What Happened to Ivy Giveaway
Suppose you’re a teenage boy with a severely disabled younger sister. You love her to bits, mostly, but it also ticks you off how she can totally mess up your social life and make you feel like an outsider even in your own family.
Suppose a girl moves in across the street from you and you like her and maybe she even likes you. And because her mom knew your mom when they were young, the girl ends up coming to your cottage one weekend.
Then suppose that before your family heads home from the cottage, your severely disabled sister dies while she’s alone in the water with your dad.
And suppose after that, things just keep getting worse.
That’s essentially what my latest book is about. I’ll be holding a draw for a free copy on October 10. Comment on this post (on my actual blog, not on Facebook) and you’ll be eligible to win.
