Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sixteen-year-old Leila Abranel loves her older half-sisters from her fathers first marriage, but does not know them well. When her sister Rebecca commits suicide, Leila wants to know why and begins navigating her familys breakdown.

Synopsis:

* “Small moments will stay with readers. . . . The vivid characters in Leilas extended family are all realistically flawed but tender with each other, as they learn that while they are ‘never to be the same . . . its enough that were each still here.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “The outstanding strength of this book is Leilas narration. Leila is a character readers will care about and want to know. It is a perfect book to hand fans of Sarah Dessen or Laurie Halse Anderson.”—VOYA When her half sister commits suicide, sixteen-year-old Leila Abranel has only one question: why? That question sets Leila on a journey toward discovery, uncertainty, and love. Rich with an intricate and mesmerizing family history, Stay with Me is a story of an unforgettable girl coming of age in the midst of grief, mystery, and, ultimately, awakening.
