Book 2 of The Croy Cycle.
Set 15 years after the events in If I Remember Him, Comfort Me follows the children of the protagonists in that book: Mally, the son of Susan Jacobs and Andy Simms; Joanie, the daughter of Ruth and John Tibbits; and Randy, the son of Virginia Alquist and Harry Edom. The three teenagers do not start off as friends, due partly to the weight of their parents’ decisions and prejudices. But they learn to balance honesty and loyalty, sexual longing and selfless love, and face the truth about themselves and each other, taking comfort in the bonds of friendship.
Originally published in 2008, this revised edition integrates elements from Book 1 of The Croy Cycle but stands alone as a compelling coming-of-age story.
Six original illustrations by Jennifer Rain Crosby enhance the text.
