I’m excited to share this book sale with you all. I snatched up a copy for myself as well.Everyone I follow on Goodreads who has read it rated it 5 stars, and that’s enough to catch my attention. I’m so interested to read a book told using so many different formats. Liza uses narration, screenplay, drawings, and free verse poetry to tell the stories of her five protagonists. How cool is that? This one is a steal at .99¢ so definitely check it out!

Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens’ stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope.
Told from all five viewpoints: narration (Tricia), narration (Emerson), free verse poetry (Angie), screenplay format (Brenda), narration and drawings (Brian).
