When Kacey Left by Dawn Green
Kacey and Sara have been the best of friends since grade three. They did everything together. Then Kacey left.
Now everyone at school is staring and whispering. And the “Obnoxious Counsellor” that her parents force her to meet with thinks writing letters to Kacey in a journal will help Sara deal with her grief. Her parents and teachers are trying to convince her that life needs to get back to normal—but how can anything ever be normal again? She and Kacey had plans—college, Europe, best friends forever. But now Kacey is gone and Sara is left to try to understand what it all meant.
Complete with an information and resource package at the end of the book, Dawn Green’s novel for young adults is an emotional and moving look at a young teen’s journey towards understanding her loss.
