Want to know what to do with it after you read it? I should tell you to buy a copy for everyone you know, but between you and me, you can pass yours along if you want to.
- Give a copy to a teacher. What kind of teacher? A drama teacher, an English teacher, a teacher who loves kids. Give it to an art teacher, or a photography teacher. Any teacher.
- Give it to a librarian. School and youth librarians are looking for teen-centered books. Some of them get tired of vampires, shape shifters, and those who live in a dystopian society. You’ll be giving the gift of contemporary fiction.
- Give it to your favorite student—especially one grades 6-11. It’s really suitable for anyone above a fourth grade reading level. Some of its themes are universal while its scenes are immediate and real. Although the heroine is a girl, there are two strong male characters, Rob and Diego.
- Give it to the parents of any teen or tween. It will help them to see themselves through teen eyes.
- Give it to a bookseller. It’s the perfect non-dystopian addition to the YA shelves.
- Give it to a church’s youth group leader. It’s worth reading and sharing. There are discussion questions in the back.
- Give it to a Girl Scout leader. Sandee is a role model for girls who empower themselves.
- Give it to the thespians and former thespians in your life. It will bring back memories.
- Give it to sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, and grandkids when they are in a show—whether it’s musical comedy, a concert, or even a Power Point presentation. Show them you understand what they’re going through and so does Sandee.
- Give a copy to the juvenile hall library in your county. They need books that include positive role models.
