Mark grapples with the loss of his twin sister in this heart-wrenching novel of grief and resilience from National Book Award finalist Carrie Arcos.

Mark knows grief. Ever since the accident that killed his twin sister, Grace, the only time he feels at peace is when he visits the bridge on which she died. Comfort is fleeting, but it's almost within reach when he's standing on the wrong side of the suicide bars. Almost.

Grace's best friend, Hanna, says she understands what he's going through. But she doesn't. She can't. It's not just the enormity of his loss. As her twin, Mark should have known Grace as well as he knows himself. Yet when he reads her journal, it's as if he didn't know her at all.

As a way to remember Grace, Hanna convinces Mark to complete Grace's bucket list from her journal. Mark's sadness, anger, and his growing feelings for Hanna threaten to overwhelm him. But Mark can't back out. He made a promise to honor Grace--and it's his one chance to set things right.

Review:

Libraries looking to diversify their collections might want to pick this up, as will those looking for thoughtful, character-driven stories.--Stephanie Klose "School Library Journal "

Readers need not have lost someone dear to appreciate Mark's odyssey, as Arcos' compelling and likable characters will draw them in.--Kirkus Reviews

I'm so glad I read this novel and journeyed with Mark through the stages of grief. THERE WILL COME A TIME is an extremely evocative experience, and one that should be shared. This book definitely is a must read.--Teenreads

Ultimately, this is a book about surviving a primal level of heartbreak, and as such it's a nuanced but thoroughly effective tearjerker in its exploration of Mark's learning to move forward alone.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

This nuanced story presents a close study on how different people react to loss while posing many thorny questions about relationships. . . Give this book to anyone who wants a rock-solid, character-driven story of finding one's footing after a life-changing event.--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
