Every Shiny Thing

By: Cordelia Jensen and Laurie Morrison

"Every Shiny Thing" is a book told by two 12-year-old girls who are both struggling with the loss of a family member. This book is about Lauren, who's brother, Ryan goes to a boarding school for autistic teens, and Sierra, who's mother has to go into rehab for her alcohol addiction. The two girls meet each other and quickly become friends. But, all of that changes when Lauren gets a plan to raise money for more autistic teens like her brother that can't afford therapy. I liked this book because each girl learns a lesson. Lauren learns that she can't help everyone out and Sierra learns that she need to take care of herself before anyone else. I think this book was so sweet and would definitely recommend reading.-Jessie
