The novels that inspired the major motion picture featuring Mandy Moore–Golden Globe nominated star of THIS IS US.
Just when you think you’ve got everything figured out for yourself, things get turned upside down. Families change. Lives end. New lives begin. And love sneaks up on you when you least expect it. The trick is finding that one person you can always count on, that one person who will throw out the rules and help you figure out how to deal with it all.
