Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt

When Payton finds out the hard way that her family has been hiding her Dad's diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis from her for six months, she is devastated. She is forced to attend meetings with the school counselor, who asks her to pick a focus option to get her through the hard time. After long contemplation, she decides on the head of the boy sitting in front of her- Sean Griswold's head. She realizes that after many years of sitting behind him, she still doesn't know hardly anything about him. As part of her "researching" she decides to learn more about him and his history. In the Book Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt, Payton learns what things in life really matter, and the real things she should be focusing on.

Sean Griswold'd Head by Lindsey Leavitt was very relatable, I could understand where the thought and feelings of the main character were coming from. This book was very fast-paced. The ending was perfect-it left me satisfied with how everything worked out. I would recommend this book to most people. It was a little on the girly side, but it showed overall what the experience of having a family member with MS in a very understandable way. This book was not the run of the mill chick-lit, it had all of the aspects I like plus extra feeling and depth that blew me alway. I was astounded and loved this book!!!
