Of all the books I have recently enjoyed, this is the most recently published. By page 3 I was already crying, but I promise this is not a depressing book even though we are going through the grieving process with our heroine.

Book Blurb:
When Rose’s mom dies, she leaves behind a brown paper bag labeled Rose’s Survival Kit. Inside the bag, Rose finds an iPod, with a to-be-determined playlist; a picture of peonies, for growing; a crystal heart, for loving; a paper star, for making a wish; and a paper kite, for letting go.

As Rose ponders the meaning of each item, she finds herself returning again and again to an unexpected source of comfort. Will is her family’s gardener, the school hockey star, and the only person who really understands what she’s going through. Can loss lead to love?

This is a clean read, yet it is not sickly sweet or lame. It has plenty of swoon worthy moments that keep you turning the pages fast. A great read.
