Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt
This book was a gripping story of dealing with pain, loss, and first love.
When Payton Gritas learns that her dad has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, her parents sign her up to meet with the schools guidance counselor. Her guidance counselor assigns her to find herself a focus object, and she finds something very strange to 'focus' on... Scott Griswold's head. She sees it throughout all her classes (he sits in front of her). The focus object is supposed to help her through her dad's disease, and it is working. With all the 'focus' she puts in to Scott Griswold's head, Peyton and Scott become friends because of their unlikely similarities including a Seinfeld obsession, and maybe Scott has some mysteries of his own...
Linday Leavitt pulled me into this book at the very first line and didn't let me go until her last. Her humor took the edge off the sadness in the book, and I had such a great time reading it!
