Praise

Publishers Weekly, May 14, 2012:
“The setting and cast emerge as real standouts, especially Clare’s friend Memory, who tells her, ‘Even the mourner must stop and laugh with the moon.’ As this memorable heroine contends with loss, Burg balances tragedy with hope and resilience.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, June 2012:
“This lyrical story will be consumed in one long sitting, but the characters will stay with readers for a very long time.

The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, September 2012:
“The novel is strongest in its presentation of loss and mourning; Clare’s emotions in dealing with her mother are raw, and the additional loss of Innocent brings many of those feelings back.”
