One For Sorrow by Mary Downing Hahn - OPTIONAL

Hahn, Mary Downing One For Sorrow, 293 pages. Clarion Books (New York) 2017 $17.  Language: G ( 0 swears ) ;Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Annie Browne, 6th grader,  who moved into the town of Mount Pleasant and attends the Pearce Academy for Girls. On the first day of school Elsie Schneider claims Annie as her “best friend”. But Annie’s class doesn't like Elsie because she’s a tattletale, liar and thief. Annie makes new friends and tries as hard as possible to distance herself from Elise. Then one day Elise dies from the deadly Spanish influenza and still claims Annie as her best friend. Can Annie get away from Elise this time?

One for Sorrow was a book that was really hard to get into. Its not until  you get towards the middle of the book it’s starts to get interesting and good. I would recommend this book if you have patience for a  story to build.
