And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard

And We StayAnd We Stay by Jenny Hubbard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Emily Beam is a confused girl who has lost her boyfriend (killed himself in the school library), was sent to a boarding school, and must now try to figure out her own feelings and guilt by reading the many poems and biographies of Emily Dickinson. Will she be able to find her voice, make new friends, live with her decisions and navigate a world without Paul. This slim novel was very powerful and part of The 2015 Hub Challenge Printz Award. Emily's journey was slow, introspective, and her poems were as important as Emily Dickinson's. A must read.
