Snailmail No More by Paula Danziger and Ann M. Martin is about two teenage girls and their friendship. Tara has moved states while Elizabeth has moved houses due to her alcholic father. They start off by writing letters and when they both get computers they take the conversation to email. It’s a lovely book, easy to read and a little compulsive. I had trouble putting it down.

Tara and Elizabeth go through the highs and lows of being teenagers. They discuss boys, changes in their bodies and making new friends. They discuss Tara becoming a big sister and Elizabeth’s father.

Issues:
Alcoholics and Alcoholism, and how it affects the family
Making new friends and incorporating them into your existing friendship group
Being different and still being friends
Death
New baby in the family
Being grounded
