Description

Critically acclaimed author and National Book Award nominee Adele Griffin is a master at capturing the difficult issues so many teens face. Where I Want to Be tells the poignant story of 18-year-old Jane and her 16-year-old sister Lily. When Lily finds her first love and grows more distant, Jane-already struggling with mental illness-feels a sharp sense of sibling rivalry. But when Jane is hit by a car and killed, Lily must learn to move on.

Professional reviews

"When Lily joined her sister, Jane, at high school, their relationship became strained as Lily moved beyond Jane's imaginary child's play and entered the teenage world of friends, clubs, and social life. Alternating chapters illustrate each sister's perspective on this development. In the third person, Ruth Ann Phimister's voice embodies the "otherness" Jane feels as she tries to fit into a world that seems so natural for Lily. In the first person, Jennifer Ikeda expresses the conflict Lily feels in loving life while missing Jane. Thoreau's lines gives Lily faith in the future: "Live in the present. Launch yourself on every wave. And find your eternity in each moment." N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
