Read this book and put your life back in perspective." -Brad Meltzer, New York Times bestselling author of HEROES FOR MY SON
"Almost unparalleled as a raw and unapologetic portrait of grief, TWO KISSES FOR MADDY is a stunning testimony of the kind of love-- fated, magnificent-- that inspires novels.
