The Pursuit of Happiness

The Pursuit of Happiness
by Tara Altebrando
This book is about a girl who is working through the summer at a reenactment type place of the colonial times. It just so happens that her mother dies at the beginning of a long journey of cancer and this book describes how everyone is affected by this even in different ways and how they deal with it. From a boyfriend who leaves her, to finding a friend in the least expected person, her father checking out, her best friend leaving her hanging. There are many great scenes in this book and I really didn't want it to end at all. The interaction between James and the main character were great. Many different topics in this book all a great read.
4 out of 5 stars.
