Young adult novels of Margie Gelbwasswer - Inconvenient, Pieces of Us

Margie Gelbwasser is a young adult fiction writer. She has published two novels to-date - Inconvenient and Pieces of Us. Both of these novels showcase just how talented Margie is as a storyteller.

Margie is able to create "real" characters that you will feel for, connect with, and believe. She is able to weave a story that is interesting, moving, and never leaves you feeling empty. You will never give out a yawn, never want to put the books down, and in the end will be left with much to think about.

Having read both of these books (which I proudly own) I can say that they are a must-read!!! Check them out today...!

Incovenient - Young Adult novel by Margie Gelbwasser

Inconvenient by Margie Gelbwasser was released in 2010 by Flux.

Brief Summary:

Fifteen-year-old Alyssa Bondar comes from a Russian-Jewish culture where a few drinks are part of the tradition. Her mom's midday cocktails turn into an alcohol problem and Alyssa is the only one who notices that it's going on. She is the only one who seems to care too since her dad is too wrapped up in the news to notice the problem and denies that anything is wrong. The drinking problem becomes serious and it seems to drag Alyssa down too.

On top of that her best friend Lana only cares about being popular even if that means trashing their Russian-Jewish heritage.

To add to all that drama decides to take up running and meets new guy (Keith) comes at one of the cross-country meets. She is interested in Keith but is he interested in her in the same way?

Who will be there for Alyssa when everything starts crumbling down? Who will be there to catch her if she falls?
