"Readers will be riveted." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 7 to 8, especially during homeschooling. It's a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.

The Ethan I Was Before is an award-winning story of love and loss, wonder and adventure, and ultimately of hope.

Lost in the Sun meets The Thing About Jellyfish in Ali Standish's breathtaking debut. A poignant middle grade novel of friendship and forgiveness, this is a classic in the making.

Ethan had been many things. He was always ready for adventure and always willing to accept a dare, especially from his best friend, Kacey. But that was before. Before the accident that took Kacey from him. Before his family moved from Boston to the small town of Palm Knot, Georgia.

Palm Knot may be tiny, but it's the home of possibility and second chances. It's also home to Coralee, a girl with a big personality and even bigger stories. Coralee may be just the friend Ethan needs, except Ethan isn't the only one with secrets. Coralee's are catching up with her, and what she's hiding might be putting both their lives at risk.

Don't miss Ali Standish's captivating new novel, August Isle, hitting shelves Winter 2019!

display_descriptionBefore: Ethan was always up for a laugh, always willing to accept a dare, always ready for a baseball game with his big brother, Roddie, or an adventure with his best friend, Kacey. Now: Ethan's family is escaping Boston for the small town of Palm Knot, Georgia. But Ethan's not sure he'll ever escape the memories of the accident that cost him everything. When Ethan meets Coralee, a girl with a big personality and even bigger stories, he starts to wonder if it's possible to become the boy he used to be again. But Ethan soon discovers that he's not the only one with secrets, and Coralee's are catching up with her. And what she's hiding just might be putting both their lives in danger.--Page 4 of cover.
