The Survival Kit, by Donna Freitas
October 11, 2011
Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
When Rose’s mom dies, she leaves behind a brown paper bag labeled Rose’s Survival Kit. Inside the bag, Rose finds an iPod, with a to-be-determined playlist; a picture of peonies, for growing; a crystal heart, for loving; a paper star, for making a wish; and a paper kite, for letting go.
As Rose ponders the meaning of each item, she finds herself returning again and again to an unexpected source of comfort. Will is her family’s gardener, the school hockey star, and the only person who really understands what she’s going through. Can loss lead to love?
I loved Freitas's "This Gorgeous Game," so I'm excited to read her newest book. I adore the cover so much!
