    1. I just read this because my daughter is interested in it I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the writing and story It was well worth my time and very engaging A great story, especially for a child dealing with the loss of a close loved one.


    2. This short book touches the heart as it explores the arc of a young girl s grief ater her mother dies Livvy is an engaging character who struggles with the agony of losing a parent and the challenge of joining a new life, family, school and neighborhood.The story deals with a painful topic without being maudlin Laughter and tears, anger and forgiveness blend to relect the turmoil that storms in the heart of the resilient fifth grader.


    3. The story of what a child feels and how they act after losing their only parent tends to set up a book to be angsty and even difficult to read I started this one with the usual trepidation, wondering how the story was going to go Sadly I was a little disappointed.There seemed to be so much that could have been said It s hardly fair, because we ve had books written since then such as A Monster Calls that handle this kind of story with so much depth and emotion that it doesn t begin to compare Bu [...]


    4. I liked this book I think this would be a good book about grieving for a young child.Pg 91 What you do then is move over some and make room, the way we always do when new people come into our lives Same as we move the other way, filling in the spaces when someone goes out of our lives But I suspect you know all about that by now.


    5. This is a touching story about a young girl who was sent to live with a complete stranger one of her mother s friends from college after her mother died It s about Livvy grieving for her mother and learning to live a totally different life I would recommend it for 8 12 year olds.


    6. Livvy is a preteen who has just lost her mother Her world changes completely when she moves in with her mother s friend Jessie.



    7. A book about a suddenly orphaned girl who goes to live with someone who wasn t as close to her mom as you d think but turns out to be a good choice Could have been cheesy but isn t.


    8. True rating 4.5 stars.A minor classic that is not quite like any other children s book I ve read Realistic in its dealings with grief and very touching.
