Maine Student Book Award Nominee 2011-2012. Get the box of tissues. Any book that deals with the death of a child knocks me on my backside, and because this is told from the point of view of the dead boy's little sister who has asperger's and already has a hard time dealing with the world, it packs a double wallop. How do people move on from a tragedy? Is there hope for a normal life after such a heartbreaking death? Help can come from unexpected places, as you'll see in this story. Very moving.
