Goodbye Stranger is a book about 3 girls: Bridget(Bridge), Tabitha, and Emily. There are also many chapters called “Valentines Day” in which there is another girl who remains anonymous until the end. Bridge had gotten in a car accident when she was 8 years old and one of the nurses told her that she must be on the Earth for a reason because Bridge barely survived. When Bridge came back to school after the accident Tabitha had made a new friend named Emily. Bridge, Emily, and Tabitha made up one rule: No Fighting. This book takes place in Bridge, Emily, Tabitha’s 7th grade year and is a great book about friendship. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good read.

Emily, Tabitha, and Bridge are three seventh grade girls who go through the year with a promise of ” no fighting”. At first everything goes smoothly and there are no corruptions in the friendship, but as the year goes on the promise becomes harder and harder to keep. Going through drama is NOT what these girls need. Goodbye Stranger is up for the Mock Newbery Award, written by a Newbery winning author. I thought that this was a excellent book, and I would recommend it to anyone who’s more on the mature side.

“Goodbye Stranger” is a book a bout 3 friends and as they grow up. They are around 12-13, and in 7th grade. They swore to never fight as children, and as they start 7th grade it gets kind of hard. Their names are Bridet (she prefers Bride), Tabitha, and Emily. As all of this goes on, an unnamed high schooler shares her experience on Valentine’s Day.
This book is fantastic!
