Review: Serendipity's Footsteps

Serendipity's Footsteps 
by Suzanne Nelson 

Publication Date: November 10, 2015
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf Books For Young Readers 

SERENDIPITY'S FOOTSTEPS tells the story of three different girls, with three very different lives, whose tales intertwine because of shoes (yes, shoes).  Whilst this may sound equivalent to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, it is anything but. Instead, these three girls are comprised of a holocaust survivor, a foster-child, and a young woman with Down syndrome. Each girl is faced with their own unique struggles, resulting in a riveting read. SERENDIPITY'S FOOTSTEPS touches upon harsh realities and the horrors of history, while managing to remain accessible. If you're interested in historical fiction or contemporary novels with well-developed characters then Serendipity's Footsteps ought to be the next book in your hands.
