How to Say Goodbye in Robot
New to town, Bea is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day: very cheery, very friendly, very average. But instead, the alphabet seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet observer who hasn't made a new friend since third grade. He's not a big fan of people in general...but he's willing to make an exception for her. Maybe.
Bea and Jonah are not going to have a friendship based on gossip and parties and what everybody else thinks. Instead, their friendship comes from truth-bound conversations, shared secrets, and late-night calls to the same old-timer radio show. They help each other, push away and hold close. It's not exactly romance--but it's definitely love. And it means more to them than either one can ever really know...
