Life Keeps Happening

But when her family moves to a house in the suburbs, she finds herself losing the only life shes ever known. Who will her friends be in this new town? More importantly, who will Janet be?
In Three Weeks and its companion novella, Saying Goodbye, Janet and her new friends find themselves at the end of childhood, facing losses as small as a familiar apartment and as large as the sudden death of a friend. As they face new challenges and heartaches, they each learn that no problem is forever awful, that loss hurtsbut it will get better.
