The Swift Boys and Me

The Swift Boys and Me
by Kody Keplinger
Scholastic Press, 2014. 265p. Fiction

Nola Sutton has been best friends with the three Swift boys who live next door as far back as she can remember. She's never really wanted any other friends besides them. But when tragedy strikes the Swift family--all three boys are deeply affected. Friendships become complicated and rocky and Nola's whole world feels like it is falling apart at the seams. Nothing will ever be the same--but Nola begins to see that doesn't mean she can't weather the storm by finding hope and strength within herself. A bitter but tenderly sweet tale of gracefully growing up and learning to deal with life's challenges. For readers who liked Wonder, Out of My Mind, and The Boy on Cinnamon Street.
