Coming Soon, The Whole Stupid Way We Are by N. Griffin

I loved every agonizing heartbreaking moment of this book!  Set in a small town in Maine best friends Dinah & Skint couldn't be more different, they both want to help and make things better for those around them but while Skint rages against the injustices of the world Dinah's main concern is trying to get Skint to wear a winter coat.  Their friendship also dances
around an elephant in the room, Skint's father is homebound with dementia a topic Skint has made clear is not to be broached.  But his family may be in desperate need of help and by the time Dinah opens her eyes and sees it things will never be the same for them.
