Another wonderful heartfelt story by Marie Fostino.
The Silver Locket follows the story of Jennifer who, after her daughter Janie is late home from school, is propelled back to her own adolescence as she remembers her life growing up.
Jennifer and her family have to move when her dad gets a new job. As the story develops we share her pain at being torn from her friends, as well as her joy when she finally meets her first love Jacy. We stand by and watch as Jacy teaches her so many things in life, some good and some not so good, and ultimately feel her pain when her most joyous day also becomes her most painful.
You will laugh and cry as you read The Silver Locket but it will also make you think, that it could quite easily be a story that could happen to anyone of us.
