9781935954040: It's a Wonderful Life

Dutch almost-eighteen-year-old Anna is not allowed to go on a Spanish beach vacation with her friends.  Instead her parents send her to small town in America to spend the summer with her uncle.  To pass the time, Anna starts working in an antique shop where she befriends different kinds of people ranging from the local undertaker--a boy her age--to an elderly Jewish couple.  Anna could never have imagined that what she thought would be the dullest holiday ever would turn out to be a time where she discovers what life is about.

About the Author:

Jesse Goossens'  work includes travel novels, a detective novel, works on theatre, a young adult novel and several interview collections on topics of social justice.  She also worked for a considerable time as a radio host and cultural journalist, and acted and sang for ten years in a small theatre company.  Her work is characterized by a fervent search for what moves people-their passions, their motivations, their lives.

Review:

"Interesting characters abound, all thoughtfully, believably sketched. . . . A slowly paced, heartfelt coming-of-age tale that effectively, albeit placidly explores life—and death—in small-town America." --Kirkus
"Anna's relationships are realistic, and her coming-of-age journey nicely articulates themes of identity and independence." --Publishers Weekly
