Lost in the Sun

Cover: 'Lost in the Sun'

Staff Review: "Lost in the Sun" by Lisa Graff

★★★★★

Fifth grade was the worst. Sixth grade could be a fresh start but Trent is sure everyone hates him for what he did—accidentally hit Jared Richards in the chest with a hockey puck and killed him. Trent is having trouble forgiving himself and remains mired in guilt. Things slowly begin to change after he meets Fallon Little, an odd girl with a scar across her face and lots of fictional stories about how she got it. Friendship is hard work and speaking one’s truth is acutely more difficult than either of them could have ever imagined. This strong, powerful tween novel will affect you long after you finish reading it. Don’t miss this book.

Audience: children, tweens | Genre: fiction
