I loved this. Though the individual elements are not unique, and there's not a whole lot of character development, and, as a couple of other reviewers have put it, there's not much of a plot, it all just really worked for me. It's a quiet, introspective book about life and death, and I think it's really beautifully written. Well done, Kevin Henkes!
