The Goodbye Year by Kaira Rouda

For a group of parents who are stumbling through senior year with their children the looming question of what next is getting closer and closer.  For Midwestern transplant Melanie she must decide if she wants to stay in California and what in the world she will do there when Dane is safely at college.  Sarah has spent years providing everything her daughter Ashley needs to be successful in the world, but now that that job is almost done the question of how to reconnect with her husband is on her mind often.  Middle school principal and schedule queen Carol is busy just getting though the day, but her husband Will is feeling the need for a bit of freedom and for Lauren who is married to an older man their are also questions of what the future may and could be.  A look at growing up and starting over from the viewpoints of parents and kids.  A touching portrait of parents and children and how the world is not always as it seems.
