I found out about this book through the website www.theglobalreadaloud.com. They are currently having a vote on the shortlist of books for next year and this is one of the books they are recommending for middle school. I decided I am going to read them all and see if there are any real standouts that we can use next year.
This is a great story about loss, grief, and sadness and how we process all three. If you are looking for a good cry, the last part of this book will definitely provide it. This book reminded me of Mockingbird by Katherine Erksine and Wonder by Palaccio so if you liked either of those books you will probably like this one too!
