The Girl Death Left Behind by Lurlene McDaniel
Lurlene McDaniel's THE GIRL DEATH LEFT BEHIND is a wonderful, heartwarming story about the true love of family. Beth Hexton's entire family was killed in a tragic car accident. She was the only survivor. Beth no longer had her parents or her siblings. She was forced to leave her home town in Tennessee to move to Florida with her Aunt Camille and goody two-shoed cousin, Terri. Beth feels alone in the world and is faced with the hardship of making all new friends at a new school. She knows that she must not dwell on the situation, but make the best of it. She learns to appreciate everything because you never know how much you really have until it's gone. Angela M.
