The Other Side of the Dark
by Joan Lowery Nixon
end of book
The theme of this book is to charish what you have and be thankful for it. A 13 yr old, Stacy gets shot by a robber and her mother is killed. The wound put her in a coma for 4 years. She wakes up to find that everyone is 4 years older (herself included), she missed a large chunk of her life, her mother is dead, and the killer is after her. I think this book makes people realize their lives aren't that bad compared to Stacy's.Stacy misses her old life and would give anything to change what happened.

  1. After reading just this short paragraph, it makes me really think about my blessings in my life, big and small. I can't believe how the whole book will have an effect on you. Does Stacy find it hard in the book to find blessings and things to be thankful for herself because of her mother's death and what happened to her?
