Young Pearl copes with losing her grandma while writing free verse poetry to express herself. Well-written, and an award-winner in Australia, my problem with the book comes from the (super-cute) illustrations that make Pearl out to be about 7yo, and I need for her to be 9 or 10yo for the sentiments and expression-of-self to feel authentic.
