A Place Apart

(1980)
A novel by

 
 
National Book Award Winner: A grieving teenager wonders if she'll ever understand anything - especially the big things - in life.

Time passed, and all the minutes hurt . . .

After her father's death, Victoria Finch's life changes completely. To save money, she and her mother move from Boston to a small house in the town of New Oxford. There, Victoria attends school in a building that resembles a train station, where no one pays her much attention.

Then she meets Hugh Todd, the rich kid who runs the school's theater club. He's charming, adventurous, and encouraging, and he takes particular interest in Victoria's writing. Hugh's presence reinvigorates Victoria's life. But he needs something as well, and as the months pass, Victoria realizes that his friendship comes at a high price.

A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year, A Place Apart is a lyrical novel of loss, friendship, and moving on.
