Reading Challenge: A book about fresh starts and new beginnings

Have you started any of our three reading challenges for 2021?
If you’re participating in the category-based reading challenge, either by using the tracking sheet or on Beanstack, we can help you find books in each of the categories. Today we’re featuring books about fresh starts and new beginnings.
These aren’t the only books we have available in this category but are ideas that can help you spark inspiration, help clarify the category, and (hopefully) make your decision easier.
