January's Book Recommendation: Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

This one is a serious tear jerker, but you finish it feeling so glad you read it. Carver sent a text to his best friend that may or may not have killed him, and his other best friend who were texting and driving. Carver feels insane guilt over the accident and decides to have a "goodbye day" for each of his friends to help their families in the aftermath. You won't want to miss this emotional roller coaster that questions life, love, and most importantly friendship. Click the book to see it on our catalog!
