Phyllis Reynolds Naylorís Blizzardís Wake is told from the shifting points of view of two characters who would rather not come into any contact with each other.  Fifteen year old Kate Sterling hates Zeke Dexter with all her heart because he killed her mother in a drunk-driving accident almost 4 years ago.  The two characters come face to face because of the great March 1941 blizzard in North Dakota.  In the Blizzardís Wake, find out if the Sterling family will survive and if they can forgive.  (Brandy Caroway, South Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
