Happy To Be Alive, Because – Book Review
Dealing with the loss of those we love is difficult.
Coming to terms with the loss of one’s mother is particularly heart-wrenching.
Yet, that’s the journey that 17-year old Avery finds herself on in Happy To Be Alive, Because – the stunning debut from 22-year old author Chelsea Jacobs.
Happy To Be Alive, Because is a beautifully written Young Adult story that takes us on a highly charged emotional journey of a young girl who is in the midst of her grieving process, and on a physical journey to the beach town where Avery’s mother grew up.
There, Avery is embraced into a new circle of friends, where she begins to experience things she never thought possible.
Happy To Be Alive, Because a book about discovering who you are – and determining how you will live out the remainder of your life, even in the midst of loss.
Don’t let the Young Adult label fool you; Happy To Be Alive, Because is a book that adults will enjoy too!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
