Softly Say Goodbye
Erin Sellers, an eighteen-year-old high school senior, hates teen drinking. She and her three friends - Bill, her guy, Shari and Jake - decide to use Twitter to stop a group, the Kewl Krew, from using their high school as the local bar. But the members of this group are just as determined to stop anyone from messing up their fun. Despite veiled threats to her safety, Erin continues her crusade.
To make matters worse for her, the stress of school and extra curricular work mounts and suddenly, shockingly, booze-fuelled tragedy strikes. Erin is now under greater pressure as she spends all hours to produce a mural and other work to commemorate the death of a teen friend. Bill, Jake and Shari support her in all this...
But more tragedy lurks nearby... until it's time to softly say goodbye.
"...What a fantastic example to other teens that they aren't alone in their decisions to stay sober and clean. The story had me be both chuckling and shedding tears. Very touching and empowering. I recommend it to the young reader and the young at heart." - April Erwin, author of Missing Pieces.
"... a book full of real characters that teens can identify with and be encouraged by. Softly Say Goodbye is an important read for any teen faced with the pressures that come with high school." - Jessica Tornese, author of Linked Through Time and Lost Through Time
"While delightful to read, it's recommended to keep a box of Kleenex close at hand as you might need to say goodbye more than once in this story." - Teresa Nordheim, children's writer and illustrator.
"... If you want a book that speaks to you and not at you, either as an adult or as a high school teenager, this book is for you. This book will touch you in a way that very few books can, and it will leave you thinking 'what if' for not only yourself, but for your children as well, no matter what age they may be." - G.B. Miller, author of Line 21.
