It’s never easy when a friend moves away. What’s there left to do once your bestie is gone?
In Andrea Maturana’s new book, Life Without Nico, little Maia experiences exactly that. She and Nico are the best of friends and do everything together. However, that all changes when Nico’s dad says their family is moving to the other side of the world.
Maia is left with an empty feeling; a hole in her life she thinks will never be filled.
That is, until she meets a furry companion, makes a new friend and even learns an instrument. Maia’s life becomes so full again that she wonders where Nico will fit in. A heartwarming story about what a kid goes through when a friend moves away: Sadness, loneliness, the uncertainty of the unknown, but eventually, the joy of new experiences.
