Reviews

* "It is her realistic relationship with the matter-of-fact Boris, a most unlikely miracle, that will catch readers, and help pull them toward seeking answers of their own for the story's very large questions." --Booklist, starred review "Just as Iris finally embraces the rain, spinning round and round, readers, too, will recognize the circular patterns of love and loss, joy and grief, life and death. A quiet, affecting journey rendered with keen insight." --Kirkus "This is a realistic view of grief, with particular emphasis on the agonizing longing to know if a lost loved one is truly out there somewhere. Iris's stay-at-home dad fills the story with great flavors and textures--from the baby chicks he hatches to his homemade bread, giving the story a cozy touch despite Iris's impossible quest for answers." --School Library Journal * "Arnold's heroine confronts her emotions honestly (even when she's putting on a brave face to mask what she really thinks or feels), and her slow, difficult journey to understand the absence left in Sarah's wake unfolds with heartbreaking believability." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Iris' grief for Sarah is unusually well captured, touching on the huge importance of the best friend relationship and the amputation felt after such a loss. This is therefore a tender yet smart story that will resonate with readers who work through their emotions by brain as well as heart." --Bulletin * "In a third-person narrative that remains fully in Iris's range of understanding, Arnold explores the range of sorrow, anger and grief Iris undergoes...Her gentle explorations of faith, doubt and making a friend while still keeping Sarah close leave a powerful impression." --Shelf Awareness, starred review
