Description


A heartbreaking—yet ultimately uplifting—epistolary middle-grade novel about family, religion, and having the courage to be yourself

"P.S. I Miss You is so moving! Evie's quiet strength and fierce determination are an inspiration. " —Ann M. Martin, author of Rain Reign and the Baby-Sitters Club

"Jen Petro-Roy has created a character with the potential to be as iconic as Judy Blume's Margaret." —Erin Dionne, author of Notes from an Accidental Band Geek

Evie is heartbroken when her strict Catholic parents send her pregnant sister, Cilla, away to stay with a distant great-aunt. All Evie wants is for her older sister to come back. Forbidden from speaking to Cilla, Evie secretly sends her letters.

Evie writes about her family, torn apart and hurting. She writes about her life, empty without Cilla. And she writes about the new girl in school, June, who becomes her friend, and then maybe more than a friend.

Evie could really use some advice from Cilla. But Cilla isn’t writing back, and it’s time for Evie to take matters into her own hands.

P.S. I Miss You by Jen Petro-Roy is a heartfelt middle grade novel dealing with faith, identity, and finding your way in difficult times.

"A touching, epistolary tale of a girl’s journey to self-discovery. . . . Evie is an authentic, well developed character struggling with the deep issues of growing up. Petro-Roy’s debut novel is realistic and relatable; middle school and junior high readers will appreciate taking Evie’s emotional journey with her." —VOYA

"The emotional conclusion will resonate with middle school fans of contemporary realistic fiction." —School Library Journal
