Snow Globe, Jeanne Skartsiaris. I have to say this is the best YA I have read this year! I love stories that test our own beliefs and stories that brings kids from everyday life to points where decisions must be made and what they learn from them. Add in a cop killer of teens and a retirement center, a good looking guy, and you have the perfect mix for a great book. A great read that deserves space on your shelf.— Della
Troubled teen. Juvenile delinquent. Aja Harmon is familiar with the labels. She and her mom live like gypsies, moving every year. Her mom works as a psychic and Aja fights to suppress her own intuitive abilities because the power scares her. After losing a cool job at Abercrombie & Fitch, the only work Aja can find is as a waitress at an elderly residence home. Slowly she begins to enjoy working with the seniors. Unlikely bonds forge, making their worlds bigger while shrinking the generation gap. If only a corrupt police officer hadn't set his sights on Aja-a beautiful girl with a sketchy past. An easy target to add to his twisted collection. Snow Globe is a story about a teen who tries to do the right thing but continues to find trouble with her smart mouth and fearless attitude. Working at the assisted living facility, Aja learns compassion and how important yet fragile life is.
