The Map From Here to There

Reviewed by:

Award-winning storyteller Emery Lord has penned a sequel to the popular “The Start of Me and You” that can be read as a standalone, about friendship and finding life balance. In a heartfelt exploration of life’s most important questions, serious and hard-working Paige Hancock is filled with anxiety as she finishes high school and prepares for college. Navigating senior year activities, her mental health issues escalate as she faces leaving supportive school friends, a charming boyfriend, a great job, and an awesome family, worrying about the unpredictability of long distance relationships. There are many misty-eyed moments as well as laughable ones in this real and relatable book about self-discovery, making big choices, vulnerable love and lasting friendships. Mature middle school and high school readers will relate to this sensitive and honest portrayal of transitioning.
