These seemingly random short stories and the young adults they involve have more in common than where the people are from. Everyone has a hidden part of their life their friends and family don’t get to see. Hitchcock has given us a glimpse into those very touching stories and the life-changing ways in which we’re all connected.
Some of these characters are going through some very real issues, things that Hitchcock did not shy away from showing us. I appreciate she didn’t hold back, and how through each person’s story, you could see exactly how life is in a small town. I enjoyed how it all came together through common threads. Thank you, Random House Children’s, for sending this along.
Everyone Dies Famous in a Small Town is available on Amazon for $10.99.
About the Book:
In this book, the impact of wildfire, a wayward priest, or a mysterious disappearance ricochet across communities, threading through stories. Here, ordinary actions such as ice skating or going to church reveal hidden truths. One choice threatens a lifelong friendship. Siblings save each other. Rescue and second chances are possible, and so is revenge.
On the surface, it seems that nothing ever happens in these towns. But Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock shows that underneath that surface, teenagers’ lives blaze with fury, with secrets, and with love so strong it burns a path to the future.
