How To Save A Life

by Sara Zarr

Jill is trying to recover from the death of her father last year, and reeling at her mother’s news that she will be adopting a baby.  Not only that, but the teen mother, Mandy, will be coming to live with Jill and her mom while the pregnancy comes to term.  In this heart-wrenching story told from dual perspectives, Jill and Mandy both search for ways to begin their lives afresh, and learn that nothing is ever simple when it comes to family.
