Review quote

Starred review, The Horn Book Magazine, July/August 2008: "Divided into a series of brief, subtitled scenes, the narrative eloquently conveys how quickly 'normal' life can change into something surreal." Starred review, Publisher's Weekly, June 2, 2008: "The humanity in the author's treatment affords the reader a sense both of grief and of peace." Starred review, Booklist, July 1, 2008: "This will stay with readers for a long time." "From the Hardcover edition."show more
