This book is very good, and it's very good in several different ways: 1. It's a very moving and convincing portrayal of a kid's grief. 2. It portrays an interesting and complex relationship between a mother and a father without feeling the need to resolve it neatly at the end. 3. It's only 160 pages long, but contains a totally satisfying emotional arc for Clayton as he copes with the death of his beloved grandfather. Rita Williams-Garcia is so talented; fans of her previous work will love this.
