Hope in the Mail
by Wendelin Van Draanen
Wendelin Van Draanen didn’t grow up wanting to be a writer, but 30 books later, she’s convinced that writing saved her life. Or, at least, saved her from a life of bitterness and despair.

American Street is an evocative and powerful coming-of-age story perfect for fans of Everything, Everything; Bone Gap; and All American Boys.

On the corner of American Street and Joy Road, Fabiola Toussaint thought she would finally find une belle vie—a good life.
