Description

That summer the brothers ran into the sun, freed from school. Time for fishing poles, lightning bugs, country roads, baseball gloves.
But then Joey was dying.
What do you do when someone you love is leaving the world? You reach for fragments of memory, like moments caught on film. You savor the vivid colors and small joys of each new day. That's what Joey's family does when they know he is leaving them.
Tony Johnston's poignant words and Barry Moser's intimate pictures, a blend of past and present, invite us to share the experience of that summer--a season of family, of life, and of love.

"This life-affirming story can provide inspiration and consolation for the brothers and sisters of seriously ill children--and for all family members when a child is losing the fight against a terrible disease. It's sure to stimulate helpful discussions."

-Gregory Reaman, M.D., Chair of the National Children's Oncology Group
