Girlhearts by Norma Fox Mazer

Mom held me around the waist, and I bent and kissed her. "I love you, honey," she said. "Love you, too." It was automatic. That's what I can't forget.

When a heart attack takes her mom's life, Sarabeth suddenly loses the only family and home she has ever known. Cynthia and Billy, friends of her mother, take in Sarabeth to live with them and their baby in their tiny one-bedroom apartment. Before long it becomes clear to Sarabeth that she is a burden to them, an intrusion in their lives. She wants to leave, but where can she go?

With startling emotional accuracy and depth, Newbery Honor-winning author Norma Fox Mazer captures what it's like to lose everything but the memories of a home and a mother, and to gain the courage to heal deep wounds.
