I recently read Waiting by carol Lynch Williams. This is a great YA novel for teens. It's a story filled with sorrow and grief as told by London a teenage girl who loses her brother Zach. London tells her story in short bursts as events unfold. Her small missionary family is broken by the loss of her brother. London's mother refuses to talk to her after Zach's death and blames her for his death. London struggles through dealing with the pain of loss and the blame that is placed on her all while adjusting to the new normal. This is a great story that leaves the readers with hope for a new beginning for London.
