Saving Red by Sonya Sones
Molly is a fifteen year old trying to cope with the recent "loss" of her brother (who is suffering from PTSD) and some heavy drama in her life involving the guilt she feels. While dealing with her own pain, Molly befriends a local mentally ill runaway affectionately nicknamed "Red". Along with her therapy dog, Pixel, and a boy, Cristo, she meets out on her adventures, Molly tries to help Red and to get her to contact home before the Christmas holidays. Written entirely in verse, Sonya Sones writes an extremely heartfelt story that surprisingly has a happy ending.
