Reviews

Done in a primary palette, the impressionistic illustrations have energy and appeal and are tasteful, raw, and emotional...As readers experience uncertainty, Watkins opens the door to discussion, making this an opportunity for dialogue about an illness that touches the lives of so many today.
--Kirkus Reviews

Front endpapers display a gallery of family photos, while the back endpapers show the pictures the son takes with Dad's camera, demonstrating the touching way he carries on his father's memory. A bittersweet book about illness, mourning, and grief that movingly emphasizes the importance of remembrance.
