Wish I Could Have Said Goodbye
Before her older sister Francesca died, sixteen-year-old Carmella D'Agostino worked at the bakery and wrote songs, but now she writes lists. Lists like ten reasons why she thinks it's her fault Francesca's dead, or five reasons why she should try and win Howie back, or one reason why she should try and stop lying to everyone, including herself.
Wish I Could Have Said Goodbye is an extraordinary novel about one family's struggle to make sense of their world after losing a family member to addiction. Through Carmella's eyes we witness the courage and strength it takes to overcome the consequences of grief, guilt and co-dependency. WIth conviction and determination, Carmella shows us what can happen when we're open to love, feel the pain of our loss, and find the courage to accept the truth of our lives.
