Corey | 7 comments The book I'm looking for is a YA novel likely written in the 1980s (I read it sometime between 1987 and 1991).
The main character is a teenaged girl (maybe 16?) whose mother recently committed suicide by jumping off a bridge.
I remember the following details:
- the mother's shoes were carefully placed side-by-side somewhere near where she jumped (possibly her car was parked there as well)
- a (pearl?) necklace was somehow important - the mother may have left it inside one of her shoes, although I'm not sure about that part. I think the girl inherited the necklace after her mother's death.

Thanks in advance for your help!

If you bump this thread about once a month, you will stand a better chance of having it ID'ed Corey. Most new members (and even older members) don't go all the way back and read the pages and pages of old posts. They just check out those that have recent activity in them.
