The Ethan I Was Before by Ali Standish

Reviewed by Jane Oliver-Purton (Library Staff)

Ethan and Kacey were the best of friends. The kind of friends who’d finish each other’s sentences. The kind of friends who’d dare each other to try things they didn’t think they could do. The kind of friends who were there for each other. Until they weren’t. Until Kacey was gone. Ethan tried to find Kacey, but every time he left to find her, someone brought him home. And then they moved, away from Boston and the Red Sox, away from where Kacey had lived across the street, away from the life the family had known and loved, and there was no longer the thought of finding Kacey. But (and isn’t there always a ‘but’) there is a girl right there in Palm Knot, Georgia, who isn’t willing to give up on Ethan. Coralee Jessup knows a little bit about bad luck and how to survive when things aren’t what you hoped they’d be. And how having a friend when you need one can make all the difference in the world.
