How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr

Jill, 17, is coping with the death of her beloved father by pushing everyone away, including her mother, boyfriend and friends.  When her mother decides to adopt a baby Jill knows her life is about to change, but she never expected how much.

Mandy, 18, is eight months pregnant and has decided to give her baby up for adoption.  When she meets Jill’s mother on an adoption website she finds a way to escape her terrible home life and start over.  But when she moves in with Jill and her mother, her life changes in ways she never expected.

Told from both Jill and Mandy’s perspective, How to Save a Life is a stunning novel about grief, love, parents and children, and finding a way to start over and make a new life.
