A warmhearted tale, particularly apt for chapter-book readers with similar experiences or an interest in multigenerational stories.
It’s a sensitive account of a family coming together, and a solid resource for those facing similar decisions.
This is a thoughtful: intergenerational story told from the perspective of a young person, and Jenna’s voice is both authentic and endearing…Fans of Patricia MacLachlan will likely warm to this tender family story about learning to help those who have the hardest time accepting it.

Children will relate to this story.
