A Parting Glass –Young Adult Novel

WHAT REVIEWERS SAY

A Parting Glass showcases author Tess Banion’s genuine flair for narrative driven storytelling. One of those rare novels that will linger in the mind and memory of the reader long after the book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf ... unreservedly recommended for personal reading lists and community library Contemporary General Fiction collections.
~ James A Cox, The Midwest Book Review

What a refreshingly different read! The subject matter is very heavy as the author tackles domestic abuse head on, however it is written in such a gentle, childlike way that it could have been written by Enid Blyton. It's the story of a young girl, Elizabeth, the fourth of five children whose father is a drunken bully. It is not a sad story though. Elizabeth's spirit and energy are addictive and I could not wait to find out the ending. Poignant and dream like, what a way to tackle such a tough topic! —Michelle S, NetGalley Reviewer

A story of transformation and coming of age in the spirit of The Book Thief  by Markus Zusak, and the The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls.

A powerful story told in a hauntingly beautiful narrative. I quickly came to care for Elizabeth, and then the rest of her family ...The world comes to life, making it easy to feel as if you are right there. It is the kind of story that will stay with you long after you've finished reading.  — Diana (Lucretia) Stanhope, NetGalley Reviewer
