Two teens meet after tragedy and learn about love, loss,
and letting go
Naima Rodriguez doesnâ€™t want your patronizing sympathy as
she grieves her father, her heroâ€”a fallen Marine. Sheâ€™ll
hate you forever if you ask her to open up and remember
him â€śas he was,â€ť though thatâ€™s all her loving family wants
her to do in order to manage her complex OCD and GAD. Sheâ€™d
rather everyone back the-eff off while she separates her
Lucky Charms marshmallows into six, always six, Ziploc
bags, while she avoids friends and people and living the
life her father so desperately wanted for her.
Dew respectfully requests a little more time to process the
sudden loss of his parents. It's causing an avalanche of
secret anxieties, so he counts on his trusty voice recorder
to convey the things he canâ€™t otherwise say aloud. He could
really use a friend to navigate a life swimming with pain
and loss and all the lovely moments in between. And then he
meets Naima and everythingâ€™s changedâ€”just not in the way
he, or she, expects.
Candace Ganger's Six Goodbyes We Never Said is no love
story. If you ask Naima, itâ€™s not even a like story. But it
is a story about love and fear and how sometimes you need a
little help to be brave enough to say goodbye.
