Suzanne Stories by Brenda Loy Wilson
"These stories revisit the simple life in which a little girl is transformed by everyday, and some not-so-everyday, events that shape and lead her through the childhood journey from a timid four year old to a bold young woman of seventeen."
—Jacqueline Dunkle, Next Generation Indie Book Awards Winner, with Gratitude & Grit and Paralyzed without Fear
Suzanne Stories takes us on a journey of firsts as she sings on the radio at four years old, first bike ride, high school dance, running away from home and her unexpected romance at seventeen. These stories and others recap the fears, excitement and struggles of growing up. Beautifully illustrated by Carolyn Teague, award winning artist from Burlington.
