Change drives drama

In this week’s crop of new books we have three novels that follow a time-worn trope.
They all start with a character at a moment of change or crisis. We have three heroines dealing with different dramas: a mother’s death, a change in country, moving in with step-parents and starting at a new school. It’s an interesting way to start a story because then the rest of the novel can explore how the character meets these new challenges. The times when things change are some of the most memorable of our lives.
