Songs of Lost Things: Sonata for the Sun
The summer Lavender turned twelve, she was eager to dip her toes into the world of make-out sessions with her school crush and late-night misdeeds with her best friend in their raucous Newark, NJ neighborhood.
Instead, Lavender will suddenly find herself cast into an unrecognizable and dispiriting world where she fights to maintain her sense of self, connection to her musical gifts, and footing inside her own family dynamics.
Such a great read. This urban based story covers grief, trauma, life as a teenager evolving into an adult and so much more. I couldn’t put the book down and can’t wait until it’s published for all to have the opportunity to read such a powerful story of overcoming. -N. Minst
