Sign up for our newsletters! AND WE STAY by Jenny Hubbard is truly a lovely and poetic tale capturing a few months in the life of a teenage girl who has been recently forced to deal with more than one devastating tragedy. This book is truly beautiful both inside and out. Her parents' insistence that she have an abortion leads to Emily breaking up with her boyfriend, Paul. But that causes him to then bring a gun to their school. While at the school, Emily is bound to acknowledge her past while trying to look toward her future. I believe that this book handled some very emotional topics that are really relevant to our current society.
