Review: Hold Still

Hold StillHold Still by Nina LaCour

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one was sad--another hard read--but really a novel about hope and about finding a way after the unthinkable happens.

I just listened to a podcast about text sets, so rather than give you a review of the novel, I'm going to give you a text set that could include Hold Still. Call the set Teens Dealing with Death
