Hold Still by Nina LaCour - ESSENTIAL

LaCour, Nina.  Hold Still.  Speak, 2009. $8.99. 304 pgs.

Content, PG-13.  Swears: 21, “F” words: 19.  Sexual Content, PG-13.  

Caitlin’s best friend Ingrid kills herself at the beginning of this harrowing novel.  Caitlin wants to fold in on herself because she doesn’t know who she is without her friend and feels very guilty that she didn’t see any of the signs to help her.  

This novel is a journey of finding who one is - with or without others.  Fantastic characters, and the writing is amazing.  just make note of the swear count.
