Booklist Johnson's latest novel -- part mystery, part ghost story, and part coming-of-age narrative -- is chilling and heartbreaking....In beautiful prose, the narrative moves fluidly from flashbacks to the present, and the stages of grief are represented in startling but realistic ways.
Publishers Weekly Those mourning a loss are likely to find Mike's incisive observations familiar and comforting.
