Ava’s best friend Kelly has died; she is an absolute mess. School is hard with people pretending to care at memorials. It is hard for her to understand how to deal with the loss of her best friend. The only thing that seems to be keeping Ava grounded is her job at Magic Kebab.
Gideon writes lists, lots of lists. He also likes to count when he is nervous. Gideon is trying to get out of his comfort zone, so he takes up his therapist's idea for a job and doing something out of character occasionally. Gideon applies for a job as a dish boy at Magic Kebab and meets the most interesting Ava.
Both exchange addresses- yes addresses! And so in the age of texting begins the exchange of hand written letters to each other’s letter boxes. Over time both Ava and Gideon become great friends, and learn that life is too precious and short. They learn to overcome their fears and guilt and move on as better versions of themselves.
This book is a stealer! You won’t be able to put it down.
