Nina LaCour

Dear Reader:

Imagine that you have a best friend, and that she is your sole ally in a town of strip malls and chain stores and classmates you don't fit in with.

Now imagine that you lose her.

HOLD STILL follows the story of Caitlin Madison after her best friend's death. Though Caitlin embarks upon her junior year stunned and alone, the world soon begins to open up to her—through art, through love, through journal entries, through new friendships.

Like Caitlin, we all have to overcome difficult events in life. HOLD STILL is about loss, but even more than that, it is about the self-discovery and new beginnings that arise from pain and struggle.

I would love to hear your thoughts about HOLD STILL. Please visit my website, send me an email, or write me a letter.

All my best,
Nina LaCour
