Two for the Good

In a classic example of life’s unfairness, author Patry Francis’ well-received first novel Liar’s Diary was published in February 2007, just a few months before she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer that has left her too weak to promote its new paperback edition.

But I can help, and you can, too. Buy Liar’s Diary here, and read Francis’ hopeful, thoughtful blog here.

And locally, Sunday night, after a “typical teenage” fight with her mother, Karissa Boudreau, a 12-year-old sixth grader from the Bridgewater, NS area disappeared from a mall parking lot and hasn’t been seen since. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing a black hoodie and vest, jeans, and pink Crocs. Police don’t suspect an abduction, but they say it’s quite unusual for a runaway this age to be missing for so long. Karissa’s family moved recently and her mother said she has no close friends in the area.

If you’re local, maybe look a little more closely at the girls walking alone beside the road.
