The Stone Beach

The Stone Beach by Kim Chatel
Eternal Press/ ebook/46pages

Caroline is finding out that part of growing up is dealing with change. Some of that change is proving to be painful for her. With the new move Caroline needs to find something to occupy her summer vacation since she is no longer close to her friends. She is also finding out that she doesn’t have as much in common with her best friend as she once believed she did. It seems it is time to make some new friends.

Next door to her new house is Aimee. Caroline and her friends used to be afraid of Aimee and think her strange. Caroline is finding out that things aren’t what they seem. Aimee is actually a very nice person, but she can be difficult to get to know. By loosing her old friends Caroline is getting the chance to know Aimee and become friends with her.

Caroline thinks that her old friends have out grown her but she is finding that she is the one that grew up and is more mature. Through it all Caroline’s cat, Casey, is a constant source of support and comfort.

Caroline is learning that life isn’t always easy but with the right friend you can deal with what life throws at you.

This book is a real tear jerker. Definitely a minimum 2 hankie read. This one makes a real impact, but keep the Kleenex handy.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses.
