Goodbye Stranger

Stead, Rebecca.  Goodbye Stranger. NY: Wendy Lamb Books, c2015.  287 pages.

Bridget, now called Bridge, should have died when she skated into an intersection and collided with a car.  A nurse told her she must have some special reason to still be alive.  Bridge wants to know what that reason is.  Her best friends Emily and Tab are beginning to change.  Can their friendship survive?  She begins to spend time with Sherm.  Are they only friends?  In this layered story, told in alternate voices, (one of them a mystery person) Bridge learns more about herself, about friendship, life, and a little about romance too.

Review by Mrs. Belknap, recommended for junior high and above.
