In the book Life, Loss, and Lemonade, the main character, April, is faced with a variety of different issues that involve her family members and dearest friends. The first issue she encounters is her best friend moving somewhere far away from her. April doesn't want her best friend to leave her behind because she's been with her through thick and thin. Friendships are meant to last forever, right? April and her best friend eventually start to discuss future plans that involve them seeing each other again, but then death comes to them. Well technically, their grandmother. When April's grandmother passes away, April has nowhere to turn because her best friend is gone and her handsome college boyfriend is...well...off at college. 

Opinion: 

Smart, funny, and emotionally relatable, this book made me think and laugh. This book isn't an "Imperial Affliction" type of book; it is a laugh-out-loud "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" type book. The serious topics that were brought up in the book made me think about how the simple things in life pass us by when we least expect it. I really loved how the characters' names were months of the year, which makes them more unique. This book should get 10 stars.
