Format: Hardcover
The end of sophomore year isn't supposed to be so complicated for Ellis; her mother wants to take her comatose father off of life support, Ellis's supposed best friend is oblivious to anything but partying and guys, and Ellis can't see how she could feel more isolated. When she reconnects with an old friend, Cara, who shows her true friendship and the possibility of something more, Ellis is forced to acknowledge that sometimes the hardest changes are the ones you need the most.

37 Things I Love (in no particular order) is an emotional story, and Magoon digs deep into the difficulties of grief and hope. Ellis's character is explored through her fading friendship with her best friend, Abby, who has been treating Ellis poorly for months. When Abby pushes Ellis too much, Ellis is forced to take a hard look at her relationships and the sort of friends she wants in her life. The change in her relationships, especially when it comes to a new relationship with Cara, prepares Ellis for some major life changes and soul-searching. The ties between Ellis and the people in her life--her father, mother, and friends--are strong and nuanced, and help highlight a theme of saying goodbye and embracing new and scary change that is necessary for life to move forward. Magoon's book may be a quick read, but she writes a memorable and affecting story that will take up a lot of room in your head and heart.

Format: Hardcover
Ellis, has less then a week left of her sophomore year but all she can think about is her father who has been in a coma for the last few years. Her mother wants to talk about their next step but Ellis doesn't want to let her father go. When Ellis was younger she had two best friends Abby and Cora. Cora pulled away from the group around 8th grade, and Ellis never knew why but she was too worried about her father to find out. Ellis and Abby are still friends but Abby can't be counted on to listen. So Ellis turns to her other friend Colin who does care enough to pay attention but Ellis still feels a bit out of sorts as if something is missing. Slowly and carefully Ellis and Cora are learning how to reconnect. Ellis discovers that her one time best friend is a lesbian. Cora's old/new friendship/maybe something more is just what Ellis needs. Ellis and Cora's relationship is handled very well. However like everything else. it was secondary to Ellis trying to cope with her father's coma and learn how to talk with her mother. This has a softer touch then Magoon's previous novels. I appreciate an author with a bit of range, different stories should read differently. Ellis's heart is on display throughout. I have read all of Magoon's novels and she has yet to disappoint. Actually she simply keeps getting better.

Format: Hardcover
Summer vacation is close, but not close enough for sophomore Ellis Baldwin to avoid a barrage of impossible choices. First, there's life or death for her father who's been in a coma since she was 13. Then there's her popular BFF Abby, their dutiful friend Colin, and a shy former friend from middle school, Cara. Ellis may even have to choose between friendship, love, and a date with an attractive senior wrestler. Kekla Magoon masterfully weaves a compelling story, completely unraveling the psyche of her engaging main character, and presenting her readers with fresh and accepting insight into grief and teenage angst. 37 Things I Love (in no particular order) is well-written and well-worth the time.
