Descrição

From acclaimed author Tricia Springstubb comes a poignant and topical middle grade novel about the effects of an accidental shooting on family, friendship, and community. Perfect for fans of Jennifer L. Holm and Rita Williams-Garcia.

Twelve-year-old Nella Sabatini's life is changing too soon, too fast. Her best friend, Clem, doesn't seem concerned; she's busy figuring out the best way to spend the "leap second"—an extra second about to be added to the world's official clock. The only person who might understand how Nella feels is Angela, but the two of them have gone from being "secret sisters" to not talking at all.

Then Angela's idolized big brother makes a terrible, fatal mistake, one that tears apart their tight-knit community and plunges his family into a whirlwind of harsh publicity and judgment. In the midst of this controversy, Nella is faced with a series of startling revelations about her parents, friends, and neighborhood. As Angela's situation becomes dangerous, Nella must choose whether to stand by or stand up. Her heart tries to tell her what to do, but can you always trust your heart? The clock ticks down, and in that extra second, past and present merge—the future will be up to her. 

A HarperAudio production.

    The main character, twelve-year-old, Nella lives in a diverse neighborhood that is changing rapidly. Nella’s school is shutting down and kids will be attending different schools the next school year. Nella’s friendships are changing too. Then the unspeakable happens. Nella and her community deal with media, slanted views, and hatred. Can any good come of this? I had to buy this book when I heard all the buzz about it. But, I was kind of disappointed with how slow the book was. Nella kept flashing back to her elementary school years, telling the story of her best friend, Angela. I had a hard time picking this book up after I would put it down. Once the “devastating event” happens in the book, it made complete sense why people loved this book. I was emotional and angry about the community and the media perception of the event. But it took me WAY too long to get to this point. I know most of my students would have abandoned the book long before that point. I wish the author would have started the book with this “devastating event” and then flashed back to tell the story. Similar to the book COUNTING BY 7s. It was worth the read in the end, but I spent too much time forcing myself to get through this book.

    This is the story of Nella and her childhood best friend Angela, as well as Angela’s older brother Anthony who Nella has a crush on. As often happens, the childhood best friends no longer are speaking while Nella has a new best friend. However, one night Anthony makes a tragic mistake that shake the entire community and this forces Nella to examine a number of beliefs and values surrounding family, friendship, class and race. It is a compelling look at what goes on behind today’s shootings and claims of racial bias.
