The List of Things That Will Not Change

The List of Things That Will Not ChangeBy Rebecca Stead

Divorce brings a wave of change to families, so Bea is dealing with her parents’ divorce by creating a list with them — a list of things that will never, ever change. They create the list and tell Bea that even though their family may look different in the future, it will still be her family. One change she is actually looking forward to is that her dad is engaged to be married to his boyfriend. Bea loves Jesse! She’s even more exhilarated by the thought of having a new sister, and is sure Sonia will feel the same way, but Bea discovers not everybody experiences the same emotions, but her trusty green notebook with its list may just help her find her way.
