Crisis at Home

January 6th, 2012 by Carrie Gleason

These three award-winning novels explore the feelings and reactions that teenagers have when their lives are disrupted by a crisis at home that is way beyond their control.

skin deep In Skin Deep, by BC writer Sandra Diersch, Corinne has big plans for the summer between grades nine and ten — she and her best friend, Romi, are planning makeovers that will put them on the popularity list next year. But Corinne's world falls to pieces when she discovers that her mom has breast cancer. Instead of shopping malls and spas, Corinne's summer is filled with doctor's visits and chemo treatments. This novel examines the range of emotions a teenager feels when faced with the realization that her parents are all too mortal.
