*Soon after 16 year old katie Ouriou had started a great adventure - she and her family would live in Paris for a year - she died suddenly. Her heartbroken family discovered that Katie had written often to her friends Ashley, Maude, and Heather, through the last summer of her life. At first they did not feel comfortable reading correspondence that was meant to be private, but Katie's letters and e-mail gave them comfort. In page after page, Katie had explored her own feelings, her belief in God, and what it meant to be a true friend.
Katie was exceptional, not because she died young, but because she lived so wisely. Love Ya Like A Sister is a testament to a girl who had much to offer, and it is a reminder that one of the most precious gifts of all is the ability to reach out and be a friend.
