AS LONG AS she can remember, Anna has lived in the same Upper West Side apartment with her parents and brother, Tom; she’s attended the same private school and had the same best friend, Katie. Katie has always loved hanging out with Anna’s family and escaping the tension in her own small apartment, where her single mom struggles to raise her severely mentally challenged brother.

But then something changes. Katie’s brother gets violent with her mother and now he’s going to live in a home. Suddenly Katie is angry with Anna, and just as quickly they’re not friends anymore. Anna’s mom tells her that Katie just needs someone to be mad at right now, and that everything will be okay, but Anna knows that she has entered the Goodbye Time—and things are changing faster than she can understand.

In The Press

Praise for The Melting Season:
“This novel will capture readers with its vivid imagery, emotional subtlety, and fine dialogue.”—Booklist, Starred

Starred Review, School Library Journal, February 2009:
“Conway gives children a way to think about the lives of those who have a much more difficult time in a way that is enlightening without being preachy.”
