This is a beautiful book. I did not read it, I savored it. My hope is that kids will grab up this book when they see that there are not that many words on the page (it is mostly written in verse)and discover what can be done with the English language. Bingham transmits her wonderful powers of observation into the perfect choice of words, and crafts this story of loss and change into one that is not so much read as felt. Warning: some PG language.
