The Ethan I Was Before

Read this book in Granite’s OverDrive Digital Library

Written by Ali Standish

This book was absolutely wonderful; we follow the story of Ethan, a boy who has recently moved from Boston to a small town in Georgia. At first, there is a bit of mystery trying to figure out what exactly happened to make Ethan’s family move so far from Boston, but as the story unfolds you find out that Ethan is trying to find a new beginning with his family; which means finding friends and trying to heal old wounds. Through his new friendship with Coralee, a girl from school, and a newfound relationship with his grandfather, Ethan learns how to heal and move forward in his life. I would recommend this book to anyone from 6th grade to adulthood. Such a great read.
