Middie Daniels calls it the leaving season: the time of year when everyone graduates high school, packs up their brand-new suitcases, and leaves home for the first time.
This year Middie's boyfriend, Nate, is the one leaving, heading to Central America for a year of volunteering after graduation. And once he returns, it'll be time for Middie to leave, too. With him. But when tragedy strikes, Middie's whole world is set spinning. No one seems to understand just how lost she is . . . except for Nate's slacker best friend, Lee. Middie and Lee have never gotten along. But with the ground ripped out from under her, Middie is finding that up is down—and that Lee Ryan might be just what she needs to find her footing once more.
Cat Jordan's heartbreaking story proves that no matter the season, no matter the obstacles, love can help you find yourself in the most unexpected of places.
The Leaving Season is definitely a deeply moving and heart-touching story that really moved me. It was endearing and heartbreaking all rolled into one very well written story! My hat goes off to the author, Cat Jordan and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
What impressed me most? How Middie grew into her own while grieving for her lost love. How she found herself, defined herself and after a bit of time, stood up for what she knew was right for her.
This book is well worth reading and I highly recommend it!
