December 8 Stay by Catherine Ryan Hyde
In the tumultuous summer of 1969, 14-year-old Lucas certainly doesn't feel like a carefree teenager. His older brother is fighting in Vietnam, sending occasional letters that arrive more blacked-out than readable. Lucas' parents fight constantly, filling the home with shouts and eerie periods of silence. Charting Lucas' journey from a sheltered teenager to a worldly young adult, Hyde brings signature compassion to her characters and highlights the relationships that allow us to feel a deeper sense of connection to the world around us.
