Get Your Semester 2 Reading List Started!

Here's Another White Pine Book!

"Optimists die first" is the working philosophy of Petula, a high school student who, despite frequent group therapy sessions and extreme, pathological cautiousness, still blames herself for the accidental death of her little sister Maxine.  When the charming, outgoing Jacob walks into her life, she starts to see the world, through film and friendship, in a more positive light.
  However, Jacob, like all her group therapy peers, has a secret that swallows him up in guilt and makes moving forward together difficult.  Adding to this is the break down of Petula's parents' marriage, her estrangement from her former best friend and crafting buddy Rachel, and far too many cats in the household.
