If You Come Softly

If You Come Softly

She’s Jewish, and he’s African–American, and one day they absolutely collide in the hallway of their school. Books go flying, and when it’s all picked up a friendship is born. The friendship blossoms into something more despite the challenges. It’s beautiful until one day....

Tissue box required. This is in my top five books to recommend to older/mature readers. It’s poignant and sensitive and fabulous. It has a sequel, Behind You.
