9780761462330: Starting From Here

Sixteen-year-old Colby Bingham’s heart has been broken too many times. Her mother has been dead for almost two years, her truck driver father is always away, her almost girlfriend just dumped her for a guy, and now she’s failing chemistry.

When a stray dog lands literally at her feet, bleeding and broken on a busy road, it seems like the Universe has it in for Colby. But the incident also knocks a chink in the walls she’s built around her heart. Against her better judgment, she decides to care for the dog.

But new connections mean new opportunities for heartbreak. Terrified of another loss, Colby bolts at the first sign of trouble, managing to alienate her best friend, her father, the cute girl pursuing her, and even her dog’s vet, who’s taken Colby under her wing. Colby can’t start over, but can she learn how to move on?

About the Author:

Born and raised in Michigan, Lisa now lives in the Chicago area, where she works as a youth services librarian. Her other interests include music, art, road trips, and spending time with her dog, Saffy.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the two years since 16-year-old Colby’s mother died, Colby’s grades have slipped, and her father’s nonstop work as a trucker leaves her to fend for herself most of the time. When Colby’s girlfriend dumps her for a guy, it’s the last straw; Colby is distraught and defensive, and she further isolates herself by avoiding the gay-straight alliance meetings at school as well as her best friend Van. Things begin to change for the better when she adopts and forms an intense attachment to a three-legged stray dog. Colby befriends a vet and finds a new love interest, but neither of the girls has come out to her parents, and Colby is reluctant to open her heart again. Debut author Bigelow capably captures a teen’s fears of abandonment and judgment, as well as the often wobbly path toward developing a sexual identity, through Colby’s pragmatic perspective. This voice-driven coming-of-age story offers a relatable glimpse at the value of honesty in relationships and of showing one’s authentic self to the world. Ages 14–up. (Aug.)
