Product Details


“Lyrical writing imbues simple scenes with complex emotional undercurrents …. The motions feel almost casually violent, slyly suggesting untrustworthiness. It’s these descriptions that truly develop the novel’s mystery-laden tension. Truly outstanding literary moments distinguish this quiet search for identity.” – Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

“Kent writes with refreshing emotional sophistication …. As literary as it is smart, Kent’s novel reflects life beautifully in its rigorous denial of pat, easy answers.” – Starred Review, Quill and Quire


Governor General’s Literary Award – Children (English) NOMINEE 2016
