The Girl In The Mall
by Canadian author, R. Jetleb
Life hasn’t been easy for fifteen-year-old Andi. When tragedy strikes, Andi runs away, and the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto seems a good place to call ‘home.’ But after a few short weeks, Andi realizes life in the mall isn’t all she thought it would be.
Fifteen-year-old Noah is shocked when he sees a girl in the mall’s food court taking food from other people’s trays. Determined to help, he befriends Andi, who, in exchange, makes him promise to keep her secret.
As Andi’s situation becomes dire, both Andi and Noah know she can’t keep living like this. Can Noah convince Andi to finally get help? And, can Andi convince herself that she not only needs help, but deserves it as well?
