Fifteen Lanes

S.J. Laidlaw

Tundra Books, Ages 14+

In her latest novel, S.J. Laidlaw gives us a poignant story of two girls who share a city but lead vastly different lives. Grace enjoys the luxurious lifestyle of an expat, though her shyness prevents her from making friends easily and fitting in at the Mumbai International School. Her best friend, Tina, has recently moved away, and Grace is desperate to find a group she can hang out with. When Grace believes she’s being courted by a senior student, Todd, she’s flattered. Over a weekend of flirtatious texts, Grace falls victim to a cruel prank that reinforces the derision of her peers. Depressed, humiliated, and shunned, she eases her emotional pain by cutting herself. At one point, she seriously considers suicide.
