Win one of three copies of Lost for Words by Alice Kuipers!


LOST FOR WORDS
by Alice Kuipers

  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Hardcover: 224 pages
  • Publisher: HarperTeen; 1 edition (May 11, 2010)
  • Language: English

My New Year's resolution: I'm moving on from everything that's happened. I'm not going to talk about it, think about it, let the memory pounce upon me like a waiting tiger, nothing.

All Sophie wants to do is forget. But it's not easy now that everything's changed. The house feels too big, school drags on for too long, lights are too bright, the room spins, and her hands get sweaty for no reason. And she can't remember why she was ever best friends with Abigail, who is obsessed with parties and boys. Only the new girl, Rosa-Leigh, with her prose poems and utter confidence, might understand. But talking to her seems impossible.

Lost in memories of the life she once had, Sophie retreats into herself. But there's only so long she can keep everything bottled up inside before she explodes. Maybe by confronting the tragedy of her past she'll figure out how to fix her future.

In you interview with author Alice Kuipers, I like that you asked her what music she'd suggest to accompany her book. I don't think I've heard that in an author interview before!
