Thank you @tlcbooktours and @littlebeebooks for this Middle Grade copy of Fadeaway. My 12 year old son picked this up as soon as he saw the basketball on the front and so far he is really enjoying it. I can’t wait to discuss it with him. .
Do you play any sports?
I’m not one to brag, I was pretty awesome at kickball back in the day! 😂 I’ve never really been athletic but with 3 boys...sports has grown on me. .
When Sam's best friend Reagan dies after her heart suddenly gives out, Sam must learn to deal with her grief and ultimately discover who she is without her best friend by her side.
Fourteen-year-old Sam thinks she has all summer to hang out with her best friend, Reagan. But then her life changes forever. Sam's world, once filled with school, basketball, and Reagan, has now abruptly changed and she must learn to navigate high school on and off the court without her best friend.
But when Reagan suddenly "reappears," Sam clings to her friend's presence, even as it hurts rather than helps her grief. Can Sam learn to accept herself without her other half? This authentic, powerful story of friendship, grief, and discovering yourself is a can't-miss debut novel from Maura Ellen Stokes.
