Life On Hold by Beverly Stowe McClure
Check out what Darby Karchut, award winning author, has to say about Life on Hold.
"All I can say is wow! Beverly Stowe McClure knocked this one out of the ballpark. The story of Myra and her search for the truth touched upon one of the fundamental needs of all children (and teens): the need for a father in their lives.
Without giving away the plot, let me say that McClure did a stellar job asking and answering an age-old question: what does [it] mean to be a father? Is it just the biological ties or is it more?
McClure captured the voice of the modern teen perfectly without relying on the usual snarky stereotypes we so often see in YA novels.
I, for one, think Beverly Stowe McClure has just written her best book yet. I've read most of her other ones and loved them all, but this one is my favorite."
In all fairness, I can't share the entire review here (hence the ellipses ;P). But I can send you to her blog to read the whole review: http://darbykarchut.blogspot.com/2012/03/book-review-life-on-hold.html
