HOW TO SAY GOODBYE IN ROBOT
Bittersweet, unusual and provocative, this story explores the relationships that make our lives worthwhile and what happens when we lose them.
Beatrice is the new kid, and Jonah is the outsider. Both share a passion for late-night radio, and both have families that are collapsing. When Jonah's twin brother, who was thought to be dead, is discovered, the two band together to try to save him. Together they find more than the words "love" or "friendship" could ever describe, and then lose everything. (SCHOLASTIC, Oct., 288 pp., $17.99, ISBN: , HC, 13 and Up)
